Why Membership Is Important to Me

“NHPCO membership provides an easily reachable network of thousands of diverse hospice and palliative care organizations and individuals across the nation. Tapping into this network – both formally through NHPCO-curated channels like MyNHPCO and annual conferences, and informally through opportunities like office hours and concurrent program participation — helps us learn and apply the best practices of our peers and provides a support system for each discipline to continue learning and growing.” – Melinda Gruber, CNA, MBA, PhD, President of Caring Circle.

“Working for a large health system, it is vital we get the rules and regulations correct while ensuring we meet the needs of our patients. With the help of NHPCO resources, we have improved our Hospice Care Compare numbers and survey results.” – Kyle Terry, MBA, Senior Director of Home Health and Hospice for Saint Francis Health System

“Since I began working for Hospice in the Pines in 1993, the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHO) has been an invaluable resource for our program. For over 40 years, the investment of NHPCO membership has afforded our organization expert resources from the nation’s top serious illness care leaders to help us invest in quality outcomes and provide the highest-quality service at the end of life.” – Demetress Harrell, CEO for Hospice in the Pines
