Compass Regional Hospice
Recently we have been asked to manage the current capital campaign for this wonderful and necessary service organization. For those not familiar with Maryland's Eastern Shore, Compass is headquartered in Centreville, Maryland and provides care to families in Kent, Queen Anne and Caroline counties. The reason I feature them this month is because their board is totally engaged and has a deep and profound understanding of their roles and responsibilities.
Compass has an innovative Hope and Healing Center. This center provides grief support to those surviving the death of a loved one. It is open to persons coping with grief whose loved one was under hospice care as well as members of the community who have experienced the death of a family member or friend from suicide, accident or unexpected causes. It is a premiere resource for restoring hope and healthy functioning. Very impressive, creative and much needed.
Their underlying care and commitment to individuals needing a hospice presence remains their essential mission. Whether in a bed in a Compass facility or in the patient's home Compass provides high standards of care, excellent staff and continuous training and a history of excellence since 1985.
We are so pleased to be associated with Compass. Some years ago MacIntyre Associates managed a capital campaign for the Queen Anne's Hospice, the previous name that was changed when the services expanded. Our founder Richard MacIntyre was part of the team then and we aim to live up to his standards.
