Passages Hospice is now offering health benefits to same-sex couples in a legal marriage or civil union.
"Our entire mission in hospice care is about life and love," said Passages Hospice founder Seth Gillman. "We serve everyone equally, including our staff."
Passages Hospice's commitment to equality in staff benefits places it among forward-thinking companies like ExxonMobile, Google and Aflac. Nationally, only about 50% of companies offer full health benefits to same-sex couples, according to the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans.
"Our employees work hard for our patients every day," Gillman said. "We want to work just as hard to for our team."
