15 best hospitals for teamwork in the U.S.

Susanna Kahr

As anyone who works in a hospital knows, it can be very hard work. You put in long hours, often during the night or early morning, you’re expected to look after lots of patients at any one time and often you don’t have a lot of time to spend with family and friends. But there’s one thing that makes all of this so much easier and that’s a great team. Having a team of like-minded colleagues and understanding supervisors is something that every healthcare worker needs. They make the time pass quicker, and more than that, you know that they have your back whenever and wherever you need them. So, let’s hear it for these 15 hospitals that kununu users rate the best for teamwork!
