Norwich, CT – Center for Hospice Care is pleased to announce that it has once again been selected as one of The Hartford Courant's Top Workplaces for 2017. The organization also received this distinction in 2014 and 2015.

Our distinction as a Top Workplace is based solely on employee feedback. An employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. Workplace Dynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 45+ Major publishing partners across the US. Over the past year, more than 6000 organizations and 2 million employees in the U.S. have turned to Workplace Dynamics to better understand what’s on the minds of their employees. In our surrounding 5 counties, 863 organizations were nominated and only 60 were chosen to receive the Top Workplace award.

Since 1985, Center for Hospice Care Southeast Connecticut has been the only community-based nonprofit hospice program in Eastern Connecticut.  We have served more than 12,500 patients and their families.  We are the largest hospice in the region and the only hospice that delivers all the care and services needed by patients and their families including extended group and individual Bereavement Counseling to anyone in the community who needs it, free of charge.  Our 90-experienced staff and over 140 trained volunteers provide expert hospice and palliative care that enables our patients and their families to optimize quality of life together.

Center for Hospice Care was designated as a Top Workplace because of our outstanding staff.  Our staff is unified in a common mission: to provide the very best care for those in our community facing a terminal illness and the death of a loved one.  In striving to fulfill our mission we are committed to serving all of the people in our care with respect and compassion.

Center for Hospice Care is not just a place where you go for a job; it takes special people to do such special work.  Working in interdisciplinary teams of professionals, every team member matters in the care of our patients and their families.  We are extremely fortunate to have such a terrific team.

“It is quite an honor to once again be recognized as one of the Hartford Courant’s “Top Workplace,” said Carol Mahier, President and CEO of Center for Hospice Care. “This is a very important honor for Center for Hospice Care because they confirm the passion and commitment our staff feels about what we do and how we do it.  Most importantly, it is recognition of the excellence and dedication of our staff; as a community of professionals, each with exceptional and concentrated skills, together we achieve more. We believe it signifies that our staff themselves, feel treated with the same respect, compassion and mutual appreciation as we collectively treat our patients and their families.”
