    This health and hospice company serves more than 100,000 patients annually and still makes “space for employees’ lives.” At least 30 days of paid time off per year, with additional flexibility for illness, caregiving, or bereavement, and an in-house foundation that helps both staff and patients in times of need, make people feel there’s “a great deal of understanding” here.
