Moffitt Cancer Center Earns a Spot on Computerworld’s 2023 Ranking of Top IT Workplaces

By Jonesa Rodriguez - December 05, 2023

Benefits, career development, diversity, equity and inclusion were a few key factors that make Moffitt Cancer Center one of Computerworld’s 2024 Best Places to Work in IT. This year, Moffitt ranked 36 among large organizations with 5,000 or more employees and is the only National Cancer Institute cancer center on the list. This is the cancer center’s fifth year being recognized.

“I know that sometimes our team members are referred to as our greatest asset. However, I think that they are so much more than that. Each of the IT professionals working at Moffitt is a real person, with aspirations, families and life outside of the cancer center,” said Joyce Oh, vice president and chief information officer at Moffitt. “As leaders, we need to understand the challenges and needs of our people so they can bring their very best to work, every day. Whether that’s via figuring out remote working arrangements, developing career ladders or performing regular market adjustments, our talented team members need to know they are being heard, respected and valued for what they do. This is a belief and culture that is paramount for us, and I’m so glad to see it reflected via this designation as one of the best places to work in IT.” 

For the past 30 years, the award has recognized the top organizations that challenge their IT staff while providing great benefits and compensation. 

In April, Computerworld started accepting nominations from organizations and IT employees. In addition to nominations, employees were sent a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits; career development; diversity, equity and inclusion; future of work; training; and retention. 

The cancer center’s diverse group of IT professionals manages a large and complex ecosystem encompassing the support of not only Moffitt’s business, clinical applications and core infrastructure, but also vital functions such as cybersecurity, biomedical devices, research technology, field services, portfolio services and enterprise architecture. 

The department is committed to continuous improvement and innovation with the successful delivery of over 50 major projects this year. IT was instrumental to the opening of Moffitt McKinley Hospital, a 500,000-square-foot inpatient surgical facility featuring patient rooms with Amazon Alexa, bedside tablets for room controls, digital whiteboards and more.

Moffitt has also been recognized as a Digital Health Most Wired organization for 2023 by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME). The cancer center achieved a level 7 special recognition for its ambulatory and acute efforts. 

“The department’s recognition by multiple outside organizations is rooted in its impressive engagement scores. With a noteworthy 98% participation rate and a commendable 4.40 on the engagement indicator, the workplace epitomizes a culture focused on support, balance and fulfillment. Team members’ testimonials mirror this sentiment, portraying a work environment that prioritizes growth, well-being and inclusivity,” Oh said.
