This past November, ProMedica Hospice Serving North Central Illinois and Southern Wisconsin (previously Heartland Hospice) held a ribbon-cutting event to celebrate both its new name and National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.
“ProMedica Hospice and ProMedica Palliative Care will join thousands of hospice agencies across America in honoring the millions of nurses, hospice aides, therapists, social workers, and hospice volunteers who make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve,” ProMedica Hospice Administrator Ann Ovsak, RN, MSN, says. “We are excited to introduce our new name – ProMedica Hospice and ProMedica Palliative Care.”
ProMedica is a Mission-driven, not-for-profit organization focused on improving the health and well-being of people in hundreds of communities across the country. We have a bold vision to reimagine health care and how it’s delivered by integrating care throughout a person’s lifetime. Our solutions drive individual, community and national impact by addressing social determinants of health, championing healthy aging and cultivating innovation. Our unique care model positions us as one of the nation's top health and well-being organizations. Our diverse services, united by a single Mission, help people reach their highest potential for health at every stage of life.
Also attending the event to support the agency were Mayor Steve Johnson, The Parks Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tonya Lamia, and Board Members for the Parks Chamber of Commerce.
