5 Questions For Hospice Providers
Watch as our CEO Dr. Kathleen Benton explains the five things you should ask before choosing a hospice provider. With over a dozen hospices in our community, it's important to realize that not all deliver the same level of care...
Art For Healing Arts
Thanks to our hosts and sponsors (see the entire list here), curator Peter Roberts, the 40 artists, attendees and art patrons who together raised more than $44,000 to support the Healing Arts of Music and Massage at our Art of Living Art Auction and Summer Nights party at Cha Bella.
Through our partnerships with the Steward Center for Palliative Care, St.Joseph's/Candler and the United Way of the Coastal Empire, we are excited to launch our informative and local Edel Caregiver Institute Patient and Caregiver Advocacy app.
Our warm thanks to the sponsors and attendees of last month's "We Remember Mama" luncheon who together raised $33,000 to ensure our patients' legacies will live on through our unique StoryKeeping program. And our gratitude to Savannah Morning News writer Betty Derby for her wonderful coverage of the event. Read Betty's story here and see all the wonderful images at this link.

Joint Commission Reaccreditation
We have again demonstrated compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for health care and safety, earning the Gold Seal of Approval™ and remaining the only hospice in the coastal Empire to hold this indicator of excellence.

CEO Dr. Kathleen Benton says,
"Our 2019 surveyor was particularly impressed by the quality, safe care provided to patients and their caregivers by our exemplary staff and volunteers. It is my hope that the medical and non-medical community alike realize that not all hospices are the same. There are at least 14 other hospices in this area, so if families want the best services they must insist on Hospice Savannah.
Additionally, the surveyor commended Full Circle Grief and Loss for providing 'one of the best and most robust bereavement programs of any hospice in the nation.'"
