Annual Board Awards Also Presented at Event
LEXINGTON, N.C. (May 15, 2019) – Last night, Hospice of Davidson County celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Henry Etta & Bruce Hinkle Hospice House at its annual donor recognition event.
Recognizing the growing needs for Davidson County residents, the nonprofit broke ground on the only inpatient hospice care facility in Davidson County in August 2007. The 12-bed inpatient unit officially opened in February 2009 and has served more than 2,900 patients and families since.
“We are honored to be caretakers for the Bruce and Henry Etta Hinkle Hospice House,” said Hospice of Davidson County CEO Laura Owen. “For many years, we saw Davidson County residents having to access inpatient hospice care outside of our county. Due to the generous support of our community, we’re honored to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of this remarkable facility.
“On a personal level, on multiple occasions my family has received services at the Hinkle Hospice House. The warm and comforting environment of the facility and of the staff provided a supported experience that we will forever be grateful for.”
Additionally, Hospice of Davidson County Board of Directors President Daniel James, presented the agency’s annual board awards.
Receiving the Founders Award were Joyce and Monty Oliver for their more than 10 years of support, making contributions of their time and resources positively benefiting the agency.
In addition, Younts Insurance received the Community Partner Award for its decade of support through event sponsorships, staff volunteer time, advocacy and continued involvement with Hospice of Davidson County.
In 2018, Hospice of Davidson County served more than 900 individuals in the Piedmont Triad with the agency’s various programs and services including providing more than $55,000 in charity care for patients in need of end-of-life care.
