The Center for Governmental Research is out with its annual list of top private employers in New York State in 2013.
Topping the list again is the North Shore – LIJ Health System, with 40,000 full-time equivalent employees, the Rochester-based group said.
The Mount Sinai Health System is second, followed by Walmart, Verizon, and JP Morgan Chase.
About half of the top private employers are in the health care field or are universities.
Most are in the New York City area, but a few upstate companies cracked the top 20: the University of Rochester at #8 and the Rochester-based Wegmans at #12 and Kaleida Health, based in Buffalo, at #20.
