Verathon was ranked as the 4th "Best Company To Work For" in the medium-size company category, (those companies with 100 to 499 employees). Verathon was selected as one of only 22 companies in that size category included in the overall Top 100. There were more than 54 medium-size companies entered overall, and over 300 small, medium and large companies in total nominated for the Top 100.

"Verathon is extremely pleased to be recognized again this year by Washington CEO Magazine as one of the 'Best Places to Work' in Washington State," stated Gerald McMorrow, founder, CEO and chairman of the board of Verathon. "Our employees are the cornerstone of our business success. Their dedication to providing innovative and reliable medical devices and service to health care professionals fuels our growth."

McMorrow continued, "Verathon's unique entrepreneurial culture allows employees, as individuals and in teams, to contribute and really make a difference in improving health care. It also allows Verathon to be nimble which helps make the company a dynamic place to work. This drives exciting career opportunities, including education and advancement."

The nomination process for "Best Places to Work For" included the initial nomination by an employee, company-wide employee surveys and completion of a corporate profile by management. Employees were asked to rate the company by completing a confidential online survey covering criteria such as effective communication, training, responsibility and decision-making, performance standards, rewards and recognition, benefits, leadership, work environment, hiring and retention and corporate culture. The data were compiled by an independent market research firm, and then a distinguished panel of judges reviewed the data and comments from the employees.
