Danvers, MA – Care Dimensions, the largest hospice and palliative care provider in Massachusetts, has been selected for the second time by Modern Healthcare magazine as one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare. The national award program identifies and recognizes 150 outstanding employers in the healthcare industry. Care Dimensions is one of only nine hospices that made the list and the only one in New England.
Modern Healthcare selects the winners based on an extensive employee survey. Care Dimensions last participated in the survey and was chosen as a winner in 2018, using the intervening years to implement changes based on employee feedback from the survey.
“This is only our second time participating in the survey, and I’m thrilled that we have again been recognized as one of the nation’s best employers in healthcare,” said Care Dimensions President and CEO Patricia Ahern. “I can’t tell you what an accomplishment this is in the healthcare field, especially in the middle of a pandemic. It really is testament to our commitment to provide a great place to work by listening to our employees, prioritizing staff safety, providing competitive benefits and professional development opportunities, being honest and transparent in our communications, and fully engaging staff in our mission to provide the best hospice and palliative care.”
"One year into the pandemic, we've seen the industry transform to meet the needs of its patients and employees," said Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare's editor. "Time and time again, the most resilient and successful organizations show that empathy towards their staff, clear vision and compassion towards the patient buoys teams and sets them up for success. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for eliciting loyalty from their workforce and communities during harrowing times."
The complete list of this year’s winners, in alphabetical order, is available at ModernHealthcare.com/bestplaceslist. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring a ranked list of all the winners along with the September 20 issue of the magazine. Care Dimensions will find out its ranking on the Best Places list and be celebrated at the 2021 Best Places to Work in Healthcare awards gala taking place on September 16 in Chicago.
