Saratoga Hospital was named a Best Hospital for Nurses in New York by Nurse.org, the web career site for nurses.
The hospital placed fourth statewide in a Nurse.org survey, earning a star rating of 4.3 out of 5. One hundred percent of Saratoga Hospital nurses who participated in the survey recommended the hospital as an employer.
Mary Jo LaPosta, chief nursing officer and senior vice president of patient care and organizational excellence at Saratoga Hospital, attributed the high ranking in part to the hospital’s status as a “Magnet facility.” Saratoga Hospital was the first in the Capital Region to earn Magnet recognition for nursing excellence and has maintained Magnet designation for more than a decade.
