COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Compassus program serving Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Greg Wilkinson during National Nursing Assistants Week June 14-21. Wilkinson is being recognized for his dedication to providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families.


“We are proud to recognize Greg for his tireless commitment to providing superior hospice care. Nursing assistants go beyond fulfilling patients’ medical needs – they truly dedicate their lives to caring for and supporting others,” said Lin Howland, executive director for Compassus – Colorado Springs. “Greg is an integral part of the Compassus team and, thanks to his selfless service, our program is able to deliver a more meaningful end-of-life experience for our patients and their loved ones.”
