As we provide support for the patients and families who are on service at Hospice of the Northwest, we sometimes encounter situations where urgent needs require the help from our partners in the community. For this reason, we developed our Provider of the Quarter program to recognize the teams of people who help us deliver the best possible care.
Last month we celebrated the North Cascade Family Physicians clinic staff as the recipients for the third quarter of 2019. This team has been incredibly helpful for last minute patient needs we’ve been unable to find assistance with in any other way. From loaning equipment to providing solutions for helping a patient with bleeding tumors, this team of exceptionally caring and compassionate health care professionals has been willing to go above and beyond to make sure our patients had help when they needed it most.
Our Hospice Medical Director Anita Meyer says it best, “It is both comforting and refreshing to have a clinic that can put patient care above the bureaucratic hurdles that get in the way of obtaining unusual items.”
We are grateful for the strong relationships we have with these providers, and we are thankful for the support the staff provides in taking care of our hospice patients. Congratulations NCFP for being exceptional partners and caretakers in our community!
