A Message From Our CEO
I’m pleased to present Hospice of Central PA’s Annual Report for 2017. This report gives us the opportunity to highlight those milestones that our hard-working team has reached. Our most significant work is always the day to day provision of the highest quality of emotional, physical and spiritual support with compassion and respect. The team’s other meaningful achievements are:
- HCP reached Level Four status with the We Honor Veterans program! This is a program developed in partnership with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. Level Four is the highest level designation and I want to recognize and congratulate the HCP Veterans’ Committee.
- In 2017 our long-standing relationship with AndrewsPatel Hematology/Oncology was further enhanced to allow our staffs to better serve patients and their families through compliantly sharing information via electronic medical records and meetings. Additionally, Dr. Wenner and Dr. Olender began providing palliative consultative services to patients in both AndrewsPatel office locations.
- Staying connected with our community supporters is so important. To that end, we began holding board alumni luncheons this year. Each fall and spring, current and past board members are invited to the office for lunch and an update of what is new and happening at Hospice of Central PA.
I hope you enjoy this report, its factoids related to our delivery of care and our sincere appreciation for our volunteers and donors. We can’t thank you often enough for all you do to promote quality end-of-life care in central Pennsylvania.
Mr. Gil Brown
President & Chief Executive Officer
