The Avamere Family of Companies Voted as One of Oregon’s Most Admired Companies

The Avamere Family of Companies has been named one of Oregon’s most admired companies in the health care category by the Portland Business Journal. This is the second time in a row Avamere has received this honor; and the third time in less than five years. The annual list is compiled from a survey of over 4,800 chief executive officers across Oregon and southwest Washington. Avamere is the only post-acute care provider to be recognized in the “health care” category, which includes hospitals, health insurers, and other providers.

“As Avamere continues to grow and impact more and more lives in the communities we serve, this type of recognition re-enforces that the core values and mission we have built our business around serve as strong guiding principles,” says John W. Morgan, CEO for the Avamere Family of Companies. “To be recognized as one of Oregon’s most admired companies for the second year running is a clear reflection of the work our employees continue to perform on a day-to-day basis to enhance the life of every person we serve.”

The 2015 list is the ninth year the Portland Business Journal has asked CEOs in the region to select the three companies they admire most across eight industries. Avamere was ranked alongside some of the state’s most prestigious health care institutions such as Oregon Health & Science University, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Zoom+, and Cambia Health Solutions.
