Pomerene Hospital Is a 2020 NorthCoast 99 Award Winner


Pomerene Hospital is proud to be recognized by ERC as one of 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the 15th time that our organization has received the NorthCoast 99 Award.

NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 22nd year that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. “More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research project that ERC established to help employers make a notable difference not only in the lives of their employees, but also in the economic vitality of their communities,” said Samantha Marx, ERC director of client service, who oversees the program.

NorthCoast 99 winners participated in a rigorous application process that asked for detailed information on how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development, and retention in the following areas: organizational strategy, policies, and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity and inclusion.

“We are excited to receive the NorthCoast 99 Award for the 15th year!” stated Human Resources Director, Jackie Genetin. “This recognition truly validates the culture of Pomerene Hospital by highlighting the reason we excel in this area; the people who help to shape it.”

“Especially during these unprecedented times, we’re thrilled to recognize and celebrate this year’s NorthCoast 99 award winners! Winning organizations are elevating the employee experience with increasingly progressive and innovative HR practices and benefits that are critical in today’s market. We look forward to sharing the success stories of our esteemed winners,” said Kelly Keefe, president of ERC.

“Pomerene is grateful for being recognized by ERC and the NorthCoast 99 award,” said Jason Justus, Pomerene Hospital CEO. “We take great pride in earning such an award because what it says about the efforts we take to live up to being a top employer in northeast Ohio.While we may have received this award in previous years, the 2020 award is very special because of the challenges our employees faced due to the Coronavirus pandemic, yet, despite the many challenges they rewarded Pomerene for our efforts to help support them during both their work life as well as their personal life.I cannot say enough about the terrific team of employees we have been blessed with.”
