Premier Medical Associates Named a 2015 Top Workplace in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, PA – August 27, 2015 - Premier Medical Associates has been designated a Top Workplace in Pittsburgh by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Workplace Dynamics’ list of Top Workplaces in 2015. This marks Premier Medical Associate’s third time on the list, having previously been ranked among Pittsburgh’s Top Workplaces in 2012 and 2014.

Premier’s foundation for success is rooted in building better care for more than 100,000 patients through close, long-term patient-physician relationships. With a growing network of over 300 dedicated employees, Premier Medical Associates is the largest multi-specialty physician practice in the Greater Pittsburgh area.

"Health care is going through some very turbulent times and these are very difficult jobs, there is a high demand for these employees and they are in short supply,” says Mark DeRubeis, CEO. “As such, our ability to attract and retain the most talented and the most engaged professionals remains paramount to our ability to providing the kind of care that we want to provide. This award signifies our success and our ability to do so. My proudest accomplishment for the organization has been achieving a Top Workplace, I think it validates that this is a culture where people want to be.”

With a focus on prevention, Premier’s model for success is defined by quality teams delivering the highest standard in health care at the lowest possible cost for its patients. The company’s collaborative culture of committed employees has earned Premier the highly coveted designation of a Level Three Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for all primary care offices.
