“We are thrilled for Debra at this exciting stage in her life,” Bishop said. “She has been an integral part of the team demonstrated through her commitment to providing the highest level of care for our Hospice patients and families while helping us become one of the Midwest’s fastest growing hospice agencies. Fortunately, Debra has agreed to continue working with us in a marketing consulting capacity, and we welcome her continued involvement.”
