Dr. Don Edwards to Retire Next Month
As many of you are aware, the Southeast Hospice Team is made up of many individuals. Every team member is vital and necessary to make a successful hospice organization. Over the last two years Southeast Hospice has experienced many changes already, but now we are preparing for the biggest change in the last 20 years. The day that we, the staff of Southeast Hospice, have dreaded is quickly approaching; and although in many ways we have heavy hearts in embracing this change, we do so with pride and nostalgia for the legacy that we celebrate.

After 50 years of medical practice, of which 20 years have been as the Southeast Hospice Medical Director, Donald Edwards, MD , is going to be hanging up his stethoscope and retiring. Dr. Edwards, more affectionately known around the office as, “Doc,” has been a cornerstone of the Southeast Hospice program. He has driven many miles, taken many calls in all hours of the day and night, guided and comforted many patients and family members, and has many, many stories to share from his days in homecare.

Please join us for an open house to celebrate this iconic man’s career and wish him all the best in his days of leisure.
