The money will be distributed between 32,000 employees and will be paid depending on their years of service.
However, even retirees of the company after 2010 will receive a portion of this generous donation.
“These are everyday people who work hard in a low-margin service business — I’m honored to work with them, I don’t go to patients’ homes much, but my employees are there every day.”
