A Mission-Driven Healthcare Provider Leading in a Time of Constant Change
No matter how you crunch the numbers, Ohio’s Hospice is one of Ohio’s and one of the nation’s largest and most significant not-for-profit providers of hospice, palliative and serious illness care. With an annual budget of $170 million, Ohio’s Hospice employs more than 1,400 staff across 44 Ohio counties, all committed to providing superior care and superior services to patients and their loved ones facing a life-limiting illness.
Like most not-for-profit hospices, approximately 70 percent of the Ohio’s Hospice budget goes to staff salaries and benefits, underscoring the value of the hands-on care and compassion that has been the hallmark of mission-driven hospice since the first volunteer hospice appeared in the United States in 1974.
Thanks to an active, engaged Board of Directors focused on its fiduciary responsibilities, Ohio’s Hospice possesses a sound balance sheet, one that gives it the funds to:
- Invest and innovate — driven by its values — to continue to fulfill its mission,
- Continue its leadership role among the nation’s most influential and innovative providers of serious illness, end-of-life and hospice care,
- Continue to attract, develop and reward a dedicated staff of end-of-life care experts, and
- Share best practices with other like-minded, community-based organizations.
That size, strength, breadth of capabilities and fiscal soundness, as we’ve seen in the previous pages, enabled Ohio’s Hospice to respond quickly, effectively, compassionately and responsibly to the COVID-19 pandemic. And it will continue to be the foundation of Ohio’s Hospice as it works to define and meet community need across the communities it is privileged to serve.
