New Members Named for Hospice of the Golden Isles Board of Directors – March 2022
“Hospice of the Golden Isles continues to be an organization I work with because of the consistent high-quality care our team provides to patients and their families,” said The Very Reverend Tom Purdy. “We’ve been in this community, led by the community, serving the community for over 40 years, and the importance of this work has only gotten stronger. I’m so pleased that we are inviting these new board members to join us in this work. We have a large service area in Southeast Georgia, and we benefit from the insights and gifts of individuals from across this region. I know they already support and cherish Hospice of the Golden Isles, and we’re so grateful that they are willing to give something back through their service.”
Since 1980, Hospice of the Golden Isles has provided expert, compassionate care for patients with advanced illness and their families in the five counties served – Glynn, McIntosh, Camden, Brantley, and Charlton.
