Giving to Compass Regional Hospice Creates Positive Impact
The Choptank Electric Cooperative Board of Directors voted to donate $5,000 over the next five years to Compass Regional Hospice for their renovations, additional facilities, and growing services across the upper counties of the Eastern Shore which include Kent, Queen Anne’s, and Caroline Counties.
“We are proud to support such a worthy cause that helps so many people in our local communities,” said Jeff Rathell, Chairman of the Choptank Electric Board of Directors. “Everyone has been touched by serious illness in some fashion, and Compass Regional Hospice has helped people during those difficult times in their lives. As part of the Cooperative’s Principles, Commitment to Community is at the core of what we do and this donation will give them the opportunity to impact our community.”
This five year commitment from Choptank Electric will help renovate the current space at The Hope & Healing Center in Centreville, along with allowing construction to begin which will add four additional hospice beds, additional parking, help them better utilize the existing space, centralize access to their Grief Support Services Department and Hospice Center, a more personalized welcome and better waiting areas, more private family space, and they will eventually move the chapel to a more convenient location for patients and families.
“We are so thankful for the donation and support of Choptank Electric Cooperative,” said Heather Guerieri, Executive Director at Compass Regional Hospice. “This will allow us to help heal families and support them in their time of need.”
