Chicago Tribune Again Names Midwest CareCenter a Top 100 Workplace!

TWP TOP100 Chicago 2014 AW

For the third year in a row, the Chicago Tribune has named Midwest CareCenter one of the Chicago area's best places to work in its annual survey of Chicago-area employers.

"Our employees are our best asset for serving patients and families, and it's important that Midwest CareCenter is a place where they can demonstrate their talents," said Jamie O'Malley, president and CEO of Midwest CareCenter. "The passion and purpose they feel about their work is very evident."

Midwest CareCenter ranked 23 in the midsize employer category, up from 32 in 2013. Organizations were selected based exclusively on questionnaires sent to employees of businesses all over Chicagoland, asking them to judge their workplaces on a wide range of criteria, including leadership, efficiency, work-life balance, communication, and more. (For more details, see the Chicago Tribune.)

Midwest CareCenter is home to some of the best hospice and palliative professionals in Chicago. Ensuring that our patients have access to exceptional care is critical to their well-being, comfort, and ability to connect with family and friends in meaningful ways. That's why Midwest CareCenter hires staff members who share our values and dedication to delivering high-quality care and strive to deliver world-class care.

The generosity of our friends and supporters enables us to provide world-class hospice and palliative care to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. All gifts are appreciated. Thank you.

Service Board Receives Community Service Award


The Service Board of Midwest CareCenter was honored last week with Midwest CareCenter's Community Service Award. For more than 25 years, the Service Board has been an important ambassador to the community. What began by sponsoring a series of educational coffees and teas in people's living rooms has expanded to coordinating major fundraisers that generate hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for Midwest CareCenter. As a token of our appreciation, Midwest CareCenter was pleased to thank all who have participated in the Service Board throughout its history with the Community Service Award.
