Sarasota Memorial Health Care System is one of the best places for women to work, not just in Sarasota but in the entire country, according to a new rating from Newsweek.

SMH was the only hospital on the Suncoast to earn a 5-star rating on Newsweek’s 2024 list of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women.”

SMH is also Sarasota County’s largest employer with more than 10,000 employees working across its two hospital campuses, freestanding ER, and network of outpatient care centers.

“As a public institution, and the largest employer in the area, SMH can help set a high standard for organizational success and show what is possible when you focus on your greatest asset – your people,” said Sarasota County Public Hospital Board Chair Sarah Lodge in a media release.

She credited SMH leaders for creating a workplace that prioritizes work-life balance and equips employees with the support and resources to perform well each day.

To determine the rankings, Newsweek surveyed more than 142,000 women, and received more than 848,000 company reviews in 2022 and 2023. Newsweek also collected data on women in the workplace, women in leadership positions, and metrics including compensation and work-life balance.
