Coastal Hospice News

A Message from Our President, Alane Capen

I'm happy to report that Coastal Hospice at the Ocean – our proposed hospice residence and outreach center - has received the support of the State of Maryland. Thanks to the efforts of Sen. James N. Mathias, Jr. (District 38) and Del. Norman H. Conway (District 38-B), we will receive $500,000 in the form of a bond. We have the matching funds in place and are ready to proceed with the project.

Both Sen. Mathias and Del. Conway expressed their appreciation for the work of Coastal Hospice & Palliative Care in their support of the bond bill, and we certainly appreciate their support as well. We're all looking forward to breaking ground soon on Coastal Hospice at the Ocean, but we have some work to do before that can happen. We'll keep you posted on our progress in future issues of this newsletter.

The people who care for our patients, the physicians, nurses, social workers, spiritual and bereavement counselors and volunteers, come together in remarkable team. Every day we learn more about the depth of their dedication and compassion. Almost as much as our legislators, I have our staff and volunteers to thank for this exciting investment in the future of Coastal Hospice.

On behalf of the staff of Coastal Hospice and Palliative Care, I wish you a safe and enjoyable summer!
