Behind the Scenes in Hospice

Behind the Scenes in Hospice Dayby Paul Weddle, COO for Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care

Behind the Scenes in Hospice Day is Monday, November 19, 2018.

Last year Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care started a new tradition, Behind the Scenes in Hospice Day!

We started this tradition as we know it takes a “village” to provide amazing hospice care.  

And on Monday, November 19th, we want to recognize the wonderful, dedicated group of professionals here at Kansas City Hospice in billing, accounting, medical records, marketing, communications, human resources, volunteer coordination, development, intake, operations, food services, expressive therapies (music/art), Top Drawer Resale Boutique, hospice house maintenance, quality and regulatory affairs. Because of their work behind the scenes, our dedicated, compassionate, expert medical team may focus on the amazing care they provide.  

It takes a great team to manage all the details, keep the organization fiscally sound, represent us to the community, collect all of our hard-earned dollars and make plans for the future. So, each person working behind the scenes is essential to ensuring that our community receives the best possible care!  

Each year we rightfully celebrate nurses, doctors, administrative professionals, nursing assistants, social workers, chaplains and health IT professionals. Now it’s time to honor everyone else who help make hospice happen.

Kansas City Hospice is now in our 38th year of providing compassionate care to the greater Kansas City area. We’re proud of the difference we make to our patients and their families. Please join us in thanking every person who works behind the scenes every day to make this possible!
