Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual report today. Among chief executives recognized by employees in the United States, Mr. Quattrocchi received an impressive 95 percent approval rating, which is based on anonymous and voluntary reviews shared by Northside Hospital employees on Glassdoor in the past 12 months.


“This recognition is possible only because of the people of Northside Hospital,” said Mr. Quattrocchi, who has been with the Atlanta-based health care system for more than 30 years. “The strength and dedication of Northside’s physicians and employees is unsurpassed – I haven’t seen anything like it in my career.”


“What they do for patients and families is remarkable. Their work has built a culture of excellence that nurtures great patient care teams,” Mr. Quattrocchi added. “Northside’s people make a huge difference every day, and it makes me very proud to be their colleague.”


As president and CEO of the Northside Hospital health system since 2004, Mr. Quattrocchi has led Northside to become one of the most respected health care organizations in the Southeast, serving 3 million patient encounters annually. In 2017, the Atlanta Business Chronicle named Mr. Quattrocchi to its list of Atlanta’s Most Admired CEOs.


Mr. Quattrocchi has been a part of the senior management team at Northside Hospital since 1987. Prior to taking the helm, he served as chief operating officer and executive vice president of finance and administration, chief financial officer and director of fiscal services.


“Winning a Glassdoor Top CEO award is a true acknowledgement of exceptional leadership, as it reflects the opinions of the employees who work with a chief executive every day. I congratulate all of this year’s winners on this significant achievement,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. “It can be a real recruiting advantage to have a top-rated CEO at the helm of a company who has strong support from his or her employees. The best CEOs are inspiring, trustworthy, and innovative and can be great motivators for people to bring their best selves to work.”
