Community Hospice Named One of 2023 Best Places to Work: Central Valley

MODESTO, CA (April 19, 2023) – Community Hospice, the oldest and largest nonprofit hospice provider in the Central Valley, was recognized on April 13, 2023, by Opportunity Stanislaus and named alongside ten other community organizations as one of the Best Places to Work in the Central Valley.

Best Places to Work: Central Valley started in 2017 when Prime Shine Car Wash (now Mister Car Wash) sought to create an independently verified survey and ranking program for local businesses. They partnered with Opportunity Stanislaus, a local economic development organization that agreed to act as the local host- with one catch. Opportunity Stanislaus wanted to ensure that all rankings be decided by an unbiased third party so that no companies could wield an advantage based on size or local popularity.

Enter Best Companies Group, an internationally known survey and rankings program known for its comprehensive extended data reports. The best part is all participating companies get survey results and no one, even Opportunity Stanislaus staff, finds out if a company participates and does not make the list of Best Places to Work. “Not everyone makes the list, but everyone gets the information they need to make vital organizational improvements and that is so important especially in this climate with companies competing for a talent pool that is proving to be restless.” said David White, Chief Executive Officer for Opportunity Stanislaus.

“Community Hospice is honored to be named one of the 2023 Best Places to Work in the Central Valley,” said Alisa Bettis, President/CEO of Community Hospice. “Our employees are the heart of our organization and essential to our community at large. It is because of our dedicated team that we can provide quality care and compassionate services to our community members when they need us most. Employee satisfaction is extremely important to us; we feel it’s fundamental that we encourage a safe and healthy work environment where our employees, who are our family members, are able to feel valued and thrive. We are so grateful for our Community Hospice family members that help us achieve our mission.”

All companies that participated in the 2023 Best Places to Work: Central Valley program receive an in-depth evaluation identifying strengths and weaknesses according to their employees. In turn, this report can be used in developing or enhancing employee retention and recruitment programs.
