Top Healthcare Companies Where Millennials Want to Work

Top Healthcare Companies Where Millennials Want to Work

A recent survey of more than 18,000 students, between the ages of 15 and 29, revealed that healthcare companies are some of the most sought-after employers for the millennial generation. 

According to the 2015 study from the National Society of High School Scholars, roughly 40 percent of the respondents expect to work in medicine or health-related fields.

Among the 25 most popular companies for which Millennials would like to work for, eight of these companies are health-related.

The list includes St. Jude Children's Research Hospital located in Memphis Tennessee, this facility ranked number 3 overall in the survey.  St. Jude’s is a pediatric treatment and research hospital that focuses on catastrophic children’s diseases like cancer and aplastic anemia.  St. Jude’s connects with the millennial generation with the use of celebrity supporters featured in their television advertisements; these supporters include Jennifer Aniston, Michael Strahan and Sofia Vergara.  Another honorable mention is Health Care Service Corporation located in Chicago; the organization ranked number 9 and is the nation’s largest customer-owned health insurer.

Also included in the list:

  • A "local hospital" — No. 6
  • Children's Healthcare of Atlanta — No. 10
  • Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minn.) — No. 14
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield (Chantilly, Va.) — No. 22
  • UnitedHealth Group (Minneapolis) — No. 23
  • Atlantic Health Service — No. 25

National Society of High School Scholars’ CEO James Lewis believes healthcare companies came out on top of the list this year because the millennial generation has a passion for helping other people.
