Lakeview Health Named One of Forbes' Best Small Employers in America

JACKSONVILLE, FL (August 11, 2023)Jacksonville-based Lakeview Health announced today that they have been recognized as one of America’s Best Small Employers by Forbes. Lakeview Health was one of only 300 companies nationwide to earn this honor.  

Forbes, in partnership with Statista, analyzed employee surveys, employer reputation websites, and social listening information from 10,000 small businesses to determine the top 300.  

“At Lakeview Health, we are focused on the overall well-being of our employees and actively listen and respond to their feedback,” says CEO Jamie Stevens. “Understanding how important family is to our employees, we implemented our paid parental leave policy this year. It’s thoughtful changes like that which help to make Lakeview a great place to work. That feeling of being heard and cared-for permeates throughout the organization and our patients feel it too.”

Stevens recognized this as an especially important achievement in the mental health space, where the effects of the pandemic can still be seen both in-terms of patient acuity and provider burnout.  

“We remained open throughout the pandemic. As a leadership team, we worked diligently to ensure that staff had the tools and resources they needed not only to perform their jobs safely, but to establish that the work they do to improve patients’ lives was seen and recognized,” said Stevens. 

Lakeview Health continues to grow and recently opened Koru Spring, an eating disorder program for adult women, at the Jacksonville campus.
