No one should face serious illness alone
Over the years, we’ve witnessed first-hand the impact that breast and ovarian cancers can have on the lives of patients and their families. Many women survive these cancers, but some do not, and the impact hits close to home when the lives in question belong to your team members.
After seeing the good that Hospice does in our community – including having some employee family members receive care from them as well – we began a relationship with the Hospice and Palliative Care Center in Winston Salem. Their services include grief counseling, advanced care planning and complimentary therapies for patients and their families. Hospice makes sure that patients don’t face death alone and that they have support for as long as they need it.
At Allegacy, we admire the relationships that Hospice builds with those they serve. Our current President and CEO Cathy Pace has served on its volunteer board for several years. Our former CEO was so thankful for the care Hospice provided his mother, he asked that a donation be made in her honor. And as a team, Allegacy is proud to compete in the Hospice Hope Run, where we race to raise funds to support the quality care that Hospice provides for our community.
Be involved. Support the good.
How do we express our concern for the community? By rolling up our sleeves and getting involved – not just because it feels good to give (though it does) – but because it’s the right thing to do. We will always do what’s right for your well-being, and for the health of our community as a whole.
