For the seventh consecutive year, Hospice of the Golden Isles (HGI) has been named a Hospice Honors recipient by HEALTHCAREfirst, a leading provider of billing and coding services, CAHPS surveys and advanced analytics.

SGHS Bridge Run: Team Hospice of the Golden Isles

We did it! The 2019 Southeast Georgia Health System’s Bridge Run is in the books, and our team is still talking about how much fun it was! For some of our nurses and administrative staff, this was the first year they walked or ran a 5k over the Sidney Lanier Bridge.  But for Hospice of the Golden Isles, we’ve been participating in the Bridge Run for almost a decade. And this year was our biggest year yet with a team of 17 staff members being led by Lynn Franklin, our fearless captain.  We are honored to help support this fundraiser for the cancer care and cardiac programs at Southeast Georgia Health System.

2019 Wine, Women & Shoes

Wine, Women & Shoes 2019 at The Cloister was everything it was expected to be…FANTASTIC! At this sold out event, the ladies enjoyed a fabulous fashion show, wine, and lots of entertainment from the enthusiastic Shoe Guys. Special thanks to WWS Chairman Becky Derrick! Mason Waters also deserves a shout out for his hosting skills and dazzling wardrobe change. Yes, that’s him on the cat walk (shown below) sporting all white. The Shoe Guy raising the most money was Frank Solana earning him King of Sole status.  Jay Wiggins came in a close second, and was crowned Prince of Sole.

Farewell to Charlotte Raymond!

We hate to say goodbye to Charlotte, but at the age of 94 and after almost 40 years of serving Hospice of the Golden Isles (HGI) it’s time for her to be closer to extended family in Pennsylvania.

Today, we surprised her during our Volunteer Appreciation Party with a cake, card, and lots of best wishes for her next adventure. It’s hard to put into words how much we love and appreciate ALL that she’s done for our patients and our staff since 1980.  Below is an older blog that gives you some insight into the impact she’s made at our hospice.

If you’d like to serve HGI as one of our treasured volunteers contact our Volunteer Coordinator Trish Burns at patriciaburns@hospice.me.
