“As a practicing hematologist-oncologist and hospice medical director, I have helped patients and their loved ones find acceptance and peace as they transition towards the end of life. This achievement is just as important as the aggressive care that helps them live with their disease. End of life care, notably pain and symptom management, are increasingly in demand in our local hospitals and healthcare facilities. Sojourn Center’s hospice house will provide the premier setting for educating various types of caregivers in delivering state-of-the-art terminal care with an emphasis on compassion and personal growth for the dying, their loved ones, and future healthcare providers.”
