2020 was a year of re-imagining – a year of learning to adapt to change, a year of learning how to meet the needs of our associates, our patients, and their loved ones in new ways. A year of discovering depths within ourselves and within our connections that we could apply to our mission to ensure that we continued to provide the highest quality of care.
Medicare sets certain standards of care that every hospice provider—regardless of size, regardless of not-for-profit or for-profit status—must meet to receive funding. For some hospice providers in Virginia those minimum standards of care are also their maximum. But at Blue Ridge Hospice, we always go above and beyond because the care about our patients and families before anything else.
Blue Ridge Hospice benefits from the generous support of the communities we’re privileged to serve.
And we’re proud that we, in turn, have been able to benefit the communities that have supported us throughout our 40 years of community service. Not just through the end-of-life care and grief support we provide — which is a given. But also through the positive impact Blue Ridge Hospice has in terms of contributing to the health of the local economy, providing quality and rewarding jobs, bettering the quality of life for all, and helping keep our environment a little greener.
