Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph Complete MergerPosted on Oct 1st, 2019 | Perma Link
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 1, 2019
Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph complete merger
(High Point & Asheboro, NC) – Effective October 1, the boards of directors of Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph announce that the merger of the two organizations is complete. Since announcing their intent to merge in May 2019, both boards and leadership teams have worked diligently to ensure that the collaboration would result in a solid, mission-driven organization whose continued common commitment is patients, families, staff and community.
Led by former Hospice of the Piedmont President and CEO Trent Cockerham, the agency will operate two campuses and inpatient facilities, Hospice Home at High Point and The Randolph Hospice House. Hospice of Randolph will operate as an affiliate of Hospice of the Piedmont while maintaining its strong position as a healthcare provider in Randolph County.
“With a broader capacity to provide services, Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph will be able to help provide care to more individuals and families each year,” says Cockerham, now CEO of the combined organization.
Over the next several months, Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph will continue to align their brands and create a cohesive position in the healthcare marketplace. Individuals and families currently receiving services will not see a change in their care.
Last year, Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph served more than 2,000 patients across their combined eight-county service area. The combined organization continues to provide in-home hospice care, as well as inpatient services, bereavement services, and palliative care programming.
“As we become one, we know that we will do great things in our community and continue to help individuals and families seek the care they need on the terms they choose,” says Rhonda Moffitt former President and CEO of Hospice of Randolph County. Moffitt will serve as the President/Chief Operating Officer of the combined organization.
Together, Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph are a non-profit organization whose mission is to connect individuals and their families with the care they need on the terms they choose through hospice, palliative, and bereavement services. The agency serves Guilford, Randolph, Davidson, Forsyth and the surrounding counties from its High Point and Asheboro office.

*Free* Advance Care Planning Clinic on Sept. 28Posted on Aug 7th, 2019 | Perma Link
In life, we prepare for many things including college, marriage, children and retirement but we rarely begin the conversation about end-of-life wishes. According to a Reuters Health study, most individuals have preferences about end-of-life treatment but only 37% of Americans have documented their healthcare wishes by completing a Living Will and/or Healthcare Power of Attorney. In an effort to empower our community to plan ahead, Hospice of Randolph County will provide a FREE Advance Directives Clinic for the public on Saturday, September 28. The Advance Directives Clinic will take place in the Education Building at Hospice of Randolph County (416 Vision Drive, Asheboro, NC) with sessions at 9am, 9:30am, 10am and 10:30am. During the half-hour sessions, attendees will receive free assistance with the completion of Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney NC Statutory Forms. No legal service, legal advice or customizable forms will be offered.
This event is free and open to the general public. Seating is limited and pre-registration is required. To pre-register, please contact Hospice of Randolph County at 336.672.9300.
Participants must bring a driver license or photo ID as well as the name, address and phone numbers of the individuals that will be assigned as the primary and secondary healthcare agents.
