NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Arkansas Hospice, the state’s largest non-profit provider of hospice services, held ribbon-cutting celebrations June 7th and 8th in conjunction with open houses for the organization’s new Northwest Arkansas offices in Berryville and Rogers.
Together, the two offices serve patients and families in all or part of Benton, Boone, Carroll, Crawford, Franklin, Madison, Marion, Newton, Searcy and Washington counties.
Arkansas Hospice President and CEO Judy Wooten, Regional Director of Operations Tim Norvell, members of senior management, Communications and Media Manager David Edwards, and Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors from both municipalities presided over the events.
While the locations are new for Arkansas Hospice, the teams at each are already a vital part of the region. As Arkansas Hospice President & CEO Judy Wooten said at the Berryville opening, “You see the folks here in the teal scrubs and the other folks working in this office. They are your family, friends and neighbors and they’re caring for their family, friends and neighbors in this community.” Citing a continuing theme of “Arkansans caring for Arkansans” at the Rogers event, Wooten stressed the importance of Arkansas Hospice’s understanding the benefits of admissions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, throughout the state’s urban and rural areas.
The mission of Arkansas Hospice is to enhance the quality of life for those facing serious illness and loss by surrounding them with love and embracing them with the best in physical, emotional and spiritual care. With the addition of these area offices, Arkansas Hospice is delivering award-winning services to patients and their families from a total of 10 area offices and 3 inpatient centers, covering a 43-county service area.
I have nothing but the best things to say about Arkansas Hospice. They were so good to my Dad before he passed away. The love and care, compassion they showed to my dad was priceless. The nurses and CNA’s that took care of my Dad are the best and always be the best.
We are just starting our dad’s final journey and Arkansas Hospice has been a blessing. They’ve taught us so much already and provide as much support and comfort to the family as they do my dad. I’m grateful they’ll be walking this final path with us.
I love Arkansas Hospice. Every single employee has a heart of gold and takes the best care of their patients.
I would not hesitate at all to recommend this provider for anyone who is considering hospice care for themselves or for a loved one.
Arkansas Hospice took care of my Mom before she passed. It was my first experience with any hospice and I was amazed. They took such great care of her. They treated her with dignity and respect until the end.
So many thanks for the way your staff treated my very dear friend, Jeff, as he raced toward the finish line. Words can’t express my gratitude for helping us to care for him and keep him comfortable. Top-notch professionalism and immediate responses to requests for assistance.
