Chesapeake Urology Associates has been named among the Best Places to Work by Baltimore magazine for 2013. This award is especially significant to the practice because it is the first time that a medical group has been given this honor.

The annual listing evaluates employers in the Greater Baltimore area on a variety of employment factors including atmosphere or physical work space, potential for career advancement, benefits, compensation, employee- and family-friendly policies, and leadership. Chesapeake Urology was one of 25 companies selected from a field of nearly 300 under consideration.

Chesapeake Urology Associates, headquartered in Owings Mills, Md., was selected by Baltimore Magazine  due to the firm’s strong leadership in “the fast-growing health sector,” its low turnover rate, and the fact that its physicians routinely “sweep” the urology specialties in the magazine’s annual “Top Doctors” survey as well as those of other publications and organizations.

“We are honored to be chosen by Baltimore Magazine among the best employers in the area,” says Sanford Siegel, M.D., president and CEO of Chesapeake Urology Associates. “We pride ourselves on being an employer where the area’s best healthcare professionals want to be every day to provide the best care possible for patients and make a positive impact on their health and lives.”

In 2011, Chesapeake Urology was selected as one of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare nationally by Modern Healthcare Magazine. These are significant honors that I take tremendous pride in as they reinforce the values that this company has been built upon.

As part of the Best Places to Work section, the magazine profiled Chesapeake Urology employee Vonda Timmons, who narrowly escaped a house fire last January and received overwhelming support from her employer and fellow employees. Even after using leave time for her husband’s surgery three months earlier, Chesapeake Urology granted her a week off, and staff members – from secretaries to practice owners – contributed furniture, clothing, a flat-screen television, a free apartment and cash to help her family rebuild following the fire.

“They made the experience a lot more bearable,” Timmons told Baltimore Magazine. “I’m from Connecticut and have no family here, but it was just like family pitching in to help.”
