Looking Back, Moving Forward
A Letter From Laura Owen, CEO
As I look back on 2021 and the past twenty months of sustaining services during a pandemic, I remain inspired by the dedication of our staff and their demonstrated commitment to caring for our area’s most vulnerable individuals. This year, we will have provided hospice care and bereavement services to over 1,000 individuals and those who comprise their support networks. In doing so, I am proud to share that none of our patients have contracted the coronavirus from our staff and, similarly, none of our staff have contracted the virus from each other. No small feat!

While we continue to construct a new sense of community and workplace due to the pandemic, I am excited about the new opportunities ahead. If anything, the pandemic has taught us that we are resilient and visionary. The use of technology to support in-person care, virtual communication platforms, and a hybrid workplace are all here to stay. At HODC, how we integrate new methods while supporting every interaction will continue to be our focus.    

As we enter into the holiday season, let us remember to be grateful for those serving our community with respect, human kindness, and expressions of love.

Blessings to you and yours,
Laura Owen
Chief Executive Officer
