“In order to ensure our team has confidence in their clinical skills, education is essential,” said Nancy Brockenshire, Hospice Executive Director. “This generous donation will ensure that not only are we offering specialized palliative care, but that it is the best our community and our region has to offer. We are forever grateful to Don and Gail for their support.”

The Endowment was officially launched at a celebration at Hospice on Tuesday July 26th, 2022. At the time of launch, multiple RNs, RPNs, and PSWs had registered for courses, with many more to follow.
