Posted on September 28, 2015 in Hospice EducationEarlier this month we celebrated Labor Day, when we recognize the contributions of workers to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our communities. For 20 years, Crossroads Hospice employees have provided compassionate care to patients at end-of-life. Across Crossroad Hospice’s footprint—in 11 regions and seven states—1,900 of our staff members cared for 11,996 patients and their families in 2014, providing 1,163,864 hours of care. Those are big numbers. But it comes down to one patient, and one Crossroads professional at a time.
