Hospice & Palliative Care // No. 2 Medium Company

It’s easy for hospice care doctors and nurses to eventually feel burned out. The emotional toll the 52 employees of Hillsboro’s Hospice and Palliative Care of Washington County sometimes feel from caring for patients with prognoses of six to 12 months is not lost on CEO Christine Larch.

Rather than working five days a week, employees interacting with patients only work three days a week (and still receive full-time benefits). Workers appreciate the laid-back work environment that includes laughing, hugs and the ability to debrief with supportive and empathetic co-workers. Accommodation and flexibility surrounding family needs are also important. “Last week we had three dogs, an infant and a toddler,” Larch says. “It always seems to work out.”

“I deeply appreciate the ability to balance work and family priorities,” says one worker.

Hospice and Palliative Care is as mission-driven as it is relaxed. Care is provided to patients regardless of whether they are insured or not, even if the impact is felt financially. It is a “core belief,” one employee says, “to do what’s right, not necessarily what’s easy or least expensive.”
