The National Partnership for Healthcare and Hospice Innovation (NPHI), the national voice for not-for-profit hospice providers, welcomes Central Wyoming Hospice as one of its newest members.
Central Wyoming Hospice provides quality, compassionate hospice care for individuals facing a life-limiting illness, as well as supporting their families. It was established as a non-profit hospice in 1981 and has cared for thousands of patients and families ever since.
“NPHI is thrilled to extend a warm welcome to Central Wyoming Hospice,” said Tom Koutsoumpas, NPHI CEO. “I resonate with their vision that individuals at the end of their lives be treated with dignity, respect and compassion, and look forward to making that a reality alongside our committed NPHI members.”
Central Wyoming Hospice serves more than 400 patients per year. It offers hospice care, grief support, and veterans care in addition to transitions support for individuals still seeking curative treatment. The clinical team brings over 170 years of collective expertise in hospice care and a volunteer base of over 80 individuals provide meals, sit vigils and companionship support.
“We joined NPHI because we believe that non-profit, community-based hospice providers historically have been and continue to be the leaders and the innovators in end-of-life care,” said Kilty Brown, Executive Director. “Ultimately, NPHI’s mission and values align closely with the type of care we provide daily.”
NPHI looks forward to working with Central Wyoming Hospice and continuing to advocate for high-quality, community-based, not-for-profit hospice, palliative, advanced illness care to patients throughout the nation.
