Hospice of Randolph County and Hospice of the Piedmont Announce Intent to MergePosted on Apr 10th, 2019 | Perma Link
Hospice of Randolph County plans to merge with Hospice of the Piedmont, effective September 30, 2019. This is a wonderful opportunity for two mission-driven, not-for-profit organizations to join together in order to better meet the needs throughout our Piedmont Triad communities.
Hospice of the Piedmont possesses the same quality of care and commitment to excellence as we do. With this partnership, we can eliminate overlapping service areas, improve patient services and better fulfill our mission of providing the highest quality end-of-life care possible in an ever-changing healthcare environment.
Our primary goal will remain focused on helping individuals seek the care they need on the terms they choose. There will be no immediate changes to our programs and the care currently being provided to our patients will remain unchanged during this transition.
