(March 20, 2018) Great Lakes Caring Home Health and Hospice (“Great Lakes Caring”) was recently named of the 2018 Best Employers in Ohio for the fourth consecutive year. This annual list was created by the Ohio SHRM State Council and Best Companies Group.
Adam Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Great Lakes Caring, credits his employees’ dedication to delivering superior quality health care, their commitment to industry-leading patient satisfaction, and their support and respect for their fellow employees as reasons for the company’s ability to be selected for the 2018 Best Employers in Ohio award.
“Our employees play a crucial role in making a difference in the lives of those we serve every day,” said Nielsen. “We believe we have a responsibility to be a great place to work for our employees and we invest in innovation, equipment and technologies to make them successful. If we did not have our extraordinary staff who are committed to value, superior quality, and patient satisfaction, we would be just like all of the other home health care companies," he noted.
