“Having spent 23 years working in hospitals, I’ve witnessed countless lives saved by the talented and compassionate care of physicians and staff. That talented and compassionate care is just as important at the end of life as it is when saving a life. My father passed away in a hospice house, and I will always remember the kindness and empathy of the staff in his last days. It is my fervent hope that, through the efforts of Sojourn Center, the New River Valley will soon benefit from a hospice house of its own. “
