Huntsville Hospital Health System is one of only two North Alabama-based companies ranked among the nation’s best employers by Forbes.

For its America’s Best Employers by State 2022 rankings, Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey 70,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. 

Thirteen Alabama-based businesses made Forbes’ best employers list, including household names in education (Auburn University, the University of Alabama, UAB) banking (Regions Financial) and insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, Alfa Insurance). Click here to see the complete rankings by state.

Among health care providers with headquarters in Alabama, only Infirmary Health of Mobile and the Alabama Department of Public Health ranked higher than Huntsville Hospital Health System. And only one other North Alabama-based business, Huntsville engineering and support services firm COLSA Corp., made the Forbes list.

“We are honored to be recognized by Forbes as one of the best employers in Alabama,” said Jeff Samz, CEO of Huntsville Hospital Health System. “It starts with hiring great people who believe in our mission of improving lives and supporting them with the resources that they need to excel.”
