JACKSON, Mich., Dec. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE have honored Careline Health Group ("Careline"), a leading Michigan Physician Services and Hospice provider, as one of the 2020 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. The national No. 4 ranking is an important milestone for Careline and a testament for what decisive and early action in the pandemic can do for employees and company morale.
During the COVID-19 pandemic Careline Health Group employees committed to proactively care for vulnerable patients, families and communities. Careline's team driven, state-wide effort has propelled the organization to become a large scale COVID-19 education and testing provider in Michigan. These efforts enabled COVID-19 testing for over 200 facilities and thousands of vulnerable residents and frontline healthcare workers from Lake Michigan to Lake Huron.
"Our team's national No. 4 ranking in the 2020 Best Workplaces for Aging Services is a testament to each individual's commitment to exceptional patient care and a family culture at work even in the face of the worst pandemic in over 100 years. Careline's early action secured adequate PPE and enabled decisive action to save lives. Even in the midst of a deadly pandemic, we have found ways to protect our patients, families and each other," said Joseph Mead, CEO at Careline Health Group.
Careline's initiative-taking approach will continue as COVID-19 vaccinations are distributed across the state. Careline's Physician Services and Hospice teams care for residents in long-term care communities ? the most vulnerable sites for rampant COVID-19 infection. Working alongside the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Careline teams are ready to assist with administering COVID-19 vaccinations as they become available.

The ranking considered feedback representing 189,159 employees working for Great Place to Work-Certifiedtm organizations in Senior Housing & Care and At-Home Care in the Aging Services industry.
