As a community-based, mission-driven, not-for-profit organization, Ohio’s Hospice’s mission focuses on community benefit in every service we provide. We strive to ensure that the end of life is as celebrated and honored as the beginning of life for every Ohioan.
Although we were founded originally as local hospice providers, today we’re so much more than simply end-of-life care providers. And that’s what makes a community benefit report like this so vital, so relevant.
On the pages that follow you’ll read how mission-fulfillment has driven our comprehensive response to the COVID-19 pandemic. And you’ll also read about how we have continued to work through the pandemic to define and meet community need for providing superior care and superior service, celebrate lives, invest in the communities we’re privileged to serve and enhance the quality of life in the communities in which we live and work.
At Ohio’s Hospice, community-based is more than a compound adjective. It is the operating principle for our Ohio’s Hospice Board of Directors as well as the governing boards for each of our associate and affiliate members. Our volunteer leaders live and work in the communities we serve. The patients and families we serve are their friends, neighbors, teammates and members of places of worship they attend.
Decisions that affect how we serve our community are made locally, not in some far-off corporate headquarters. Decisions are based on mission fulfillment and community investment, not on return on investment for stockholders or private investors/owners.
