Thanks to the nearly 1,000 team members at JourneyCare, there is one more reason to celebrate this month during National Home Care and Hospice Month – the agency was named one of The Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces back-to-back.
“We are so proud and grateful to be chosen as a Chicago Tribune Top 100 Workplace for a second year in a row. This honor reflects the sentiments of team members throughout our agency,” JourneyCare President and CEO Kimberly Hobson said. “Caring for patients with serious illness is meaningful work and JourneyCare is fortunate to have such dedicated staff members who also help foster a rewarding and vibrant workplace culture.”
JourneyCare, the largest nonprofit provider of palliative, supportive and end-of-life care in Illinois. Its team members helped earn this back-to-back honor by participating in a survey conducted by an independent firm this summer. The survey measured key qualities like company leadership, career opportunities and advancement, and working environment.
As hospices and healthcare organizations across the country observe National Home Care and Hospice Month this November, the award is especially significant for JourneyCare. The agency is leading healthcare transformation with innovative care models like JourneyCare House Calls in-home primary care and Home Health; both reach patients at earlier stages in their illness and deliver high-quality, effective and compassionate care while also improving patient outcomes and efficiencies.
Through all JourneyCare programs, team members serve 13,000 families and the organization is licensed to serve patients across 13 counties in the Chicago region, wherever patients may call home. Their commitment and dedication to caring for patients and their families embodies the spirit of the Top Workplace award.
