MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — Beach Cities Health District has been ranked number six as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Healthcare, according to Modern Healthcare. BCHD is in the Provider/Insurer category.

“Our employees are our greatest asset at BCHD and they have risen to the occasion during this pandemic,” said Tom Bakaly, CEO of BCHD. “In March, we shifted our focus to helping the residents of Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach have the information, testing and assistance needed to deal with COVID-19 and I could not be more proud of our organization for the work we have done in 2020.”

This is the ninth time BCHD has been recognized as a Best Place to Work by Modern Healthcare. BCHD has been recognized in nine of the last 10 years and had a streak of eight years in a row.

BCHD was honored during a virtual awards ceremony on October 8 held in conjunction with the Workplace of the Future Conference. The 2020 Best Places to Work in Healthcare awards gala celebrated all of the 2020 winners.

"It has been an especially trying year for the world, and healthcare in particular as COVID-19 ravages our communities and your workplaces," said Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare's editor.

The loyalty and trust between employers and their workers have been put to the test now more than ever.
