Hot Springs, Ark – Arkansas Hospice, the state’s largest provider of hospice services, held a ribbon cutting and open house celebration September 18th for a new area office located in the historic Hamp Williams building in downtown Hot Springs.

Arkansas Hospice President and CEO Judy Wooten, Area Manager Richard McCarter, friends and supporters of Arkansas Hospice, and Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors presided over the event.

Arkansas Hospice President & CEO Judy Wooten said during the event that expansion into a new location was needed to accommodate growing patient census, as well as provide associates with an enhanced work environment. Citing a continuing theme of “Arkansans caring for Arkansans,” Wooten stressed the importance of Arkansas Hospice providing patients in Garland and surrounding counties the benefits of admissions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Arkansas Hospice serves patients and families facing a life-limiting illness wherever they call home – private home, nursing home, assisted living facility, or other places of residence – as well as in hospitals and inpatient hospice facilities, including the Arkansas Hospice Hot Springs Inpatient Center located at CHI St. Vincent.

A significant remodeling of the area office workspace was made possible by a gift from the Margaret Ann Olvey Trust. Arkansas Hospice Foundation Executive Director Renie Rule, said, “We are so grateful to the Olvey Trust for supporting Arkansas Hospice. Because of this generosity, new furnishings, office equipment, and other enhancements in addition to the remodeling have been made possible.”

In February 2005, Arkansas Hospice opened its Hot Springs Inpatient Center at CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs, adding care for patients in need of symptom control in a hospital-like setting.

Today, Arkansas Hospice provides award-winning care to patients and their families from a total of 10 area offices and 3 inpatient centers, covering a 43-county service area across the state.
