Over the last 15 years, Compassus has served more than 4,000 patients, provided grief support to 4,500 family members and hosted 750 “Inspiring Life” celebrations.
“Since we opened our doors as a new hospice provider 15 years ago, we have grown into a respected and trusted community partner. Our services are valued by our families and local healthcare providers, and our loving care has transformed the lives of so many friends in Southern Maine,” said Patricia Garson, Area Executive of Clinical Operations at Compassus. “We look forward to continuing to provide the greatest possible comfort and care for those who experience one of life’s most intimate and challenging moments. We are so honored to have served so many and appreciate the deep collaboration we receive from our amazing care partners.”
This summer, colleagues gathered to commemorate the anniversary at a retreat where they reflected upon their achievements over the past decade, recognized staff and leadership. On November 9th Compassus honored the community at an Open House gathering.
“This milestone is a testament to Compassus’ commitment to raising awareness of and expanding access to hospice care for qualified individuals,” said Sheri Corcoran, Area Marketing Executive. “We are fortunate to work alongside so many in our community, to whom are truly grateful!”
The Compassus care team consists of physicians, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains and volunteers, who work together to meet the medical, emotional and spiritual needs of their patients. Hospice care is provided wherever the patient calls home, including their home, a long-term care facility or an assisted living facility.
