Author: Sherry Farney


McLaren Flint, part of McLaren Health Care and the 378-bed hospital serving all of Genesee County, was named one of 'Flint & Genesee’s Top 10 Employers’ on September 14, 2023. This new recognition program from the Flint & Genesee Group is being highlighted in the September/October edition of AND, the Group’s bimonthly business magazine.

"We are deeply honored to receive this recognition,” said Chris Candela, McLaren Flint President and CEO. "This achievement reflects our unwavering commitment to creating a positive and empowering work environment for our team members. We are also grateful for the more than 2,200 staff who have chosen McLaren as their employer, and their dedication to providing our community with high-quality healthcare. It’s our team that makes this recognition possible."

The application process for the new Flint & Genesee Group’s Top 10 Employers program opened in April. An external committee comprised of human resources and leadership consultants reviewed and scored each application.

“These employers set the bar for what makes a great place to work in our community,” said Tim Herman, CEO of the Flint & Genesee Group.

Health care is competitive, and the hospital knows how important it is to support employee growth and professional development and provide opportunities for advancement.

“We offer tuition reimbursement for nearly all positions and loan repayment programs for many clinical positions,” said Amy Dorr, McLaren Health Care Regional Vice President of Human Resources. “We embrace a culture of promoting from within and provide opportunities to advance from entry-level positions to the highest levels of leadership.”

McLaren Flint also has several ongoing employee recognition awards, and staff celebrations that are held throughout the year. A large outdoor patio is always available for everyone to enjoy lunch or a break, and on Wednesdays during the summer we offer BBQ menu items and music. In addition, an employee engagement committee provides fun competitions, spontaneous rewards, and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) recognitions year-round.
