ARLINGTON, Texas — For the seventh consecutive year, Texas Health Resources has placed among the top of Fortune’s 2021 list of Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma.™ Texas Health is ranked No. 1 on the list.
“Achieving such a high ranking on this prestigious list as we have cared for our community members sick with COVID-19 is a testament to the strength of our commitment to our patients and each other,” said Barclay Berdan, FACHE, CEO. “I appreciate the dedication that Texas Health employees bring to their work each day and am proud to lead an organization committed to our mission of improving the health of the people in the communities we serve.”
