WALTHAM, Mass. – November 8, 2022 – Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), the nation's leader in kidney care, has been named one of the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America by Healthiest Employers for 2022.
With 70,000 full-time employees, FMCNA is the sixth-largest employer on the Healthiest Employers list and ranks No. 24 out of all companies.
"We are proud to offer our employees a workplace conducive to their health and wellbeing," said Bill Valle, CEO of Fresenius Medical Care North America. "It is an honor for our company to receive this additional recognition that reaffirms our commitment and love for our employees."
FMCNA promotes the health and prosperity of employees and families so they can thrive in life and at work, focusing on programs targeting employees' physical, emotional, financial, and social needs.
Employee wellbeing is connected to FMCNA's broad organizational goals, including diversity, equity, and inclusion, which FMCNA identified as a priority when it introduced Employee Resource Groups in 2021. More than 13,000 employees have also already participated in diversity, equity, and inclusion workshops.
FMCNA's expansive healthcare support includes free behavioral healthcare access, free virtual physical therapy programs, and virtual counseling options that include text therapy and gender-affirming care.

Since 2009, Healthiest Employers has compiled the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America by assessing companies in six categories: culture and leadership commitment, foundational concepts, strategic planning, communications and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analytics. Companies are also scored based on an essay submission and additional questions related to chronic conditions and workplace health. The national award takes the highest scoring applicants from all locations, company sizes, and industries.
