According to a Chicago Tribune report, Lightways Hospice and Serious Illness Care has been named a 2021 Top Workplace. The award winners are selected solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey measured 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization.

“I feel that Lightways is ahead of the game in hospice care. I feel that we provide care services that other hospices do not offer. I like that we change as healthcare changes and meets the needs of our local communities.”
