Executive Director’s Message

Carpenter Hospice is an exceptional place because of the people. Our Hospice team – nurses, personal support workers and physicians – have worked in unprecedented health care times. While challenging, this did not impact the quality of their care or their unwavering commitment to ensuring a meaningful and compassionate experience for every client and their families.

We are fortunate to have extraordinary nurses at our Hospice, and we celebrate them and the broader Hospice team by extending a heartfelt thank you today and every day.

With heartfelt thanks,

Kim Pearson
Executive Director

With sincere appreciation,

National Nursing Week annual celebrations occur from Monday to Sunday of the same week as Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12.

This year’s theme is #WeAnswerTheCall and was developed by CNA to showcase nurses’ many roles in a patient’s healthcare journey. The pandemic brought to light the courage and commitment nurses work under every day and showed nurses’ vital role in the community.
