(Alexandria, Va) – The National Hospice Foundation, which raises funds to support hospice, offers a meaningful way to honor loved ones or recognize the contributions of an individual or organization while investing in the hospice and palliative care community.

Through NHF’s Tribute Project, donors create a “tile” to be mounted at the National Center for Care at the End of Life which houses the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and its affiliates. Tiles may be a way of honoring an organization, its founder, a retiring CEO, board member, volunteer or another member of the caregiving team; remembering the legacy of a family member, colleague or friend; and investing in the comprehensive care that hospice provides.

“We have already begun building the “wall” of tiles here at the National Center. It’s a wonderful, lasting tribute to individuals and organizations who have contributed to hospice, or touched the lives of those who work in hospice in many different ways,” said John Mastrojohn, executive director of the National Hospice Foundation.

OnePoint Patient Care, a specialty pharmacy that works closely with hospice programs to provide in-home deliveries, is an early participant in the Tribute Project.

“Our choice to participate in NHF’s Tribute Project was based on our hope to increase awareness of the tremendous value hospice care provides to end-of-life patients, accentuate the tremendous value local community-based partners such as OnePoint Patient Care play in supporting the needs of hospice patients, and to encourage hospices to ‘demand more’ from the partners they choose to deliver care to the patients and the community they so proudly serve,” Kevin Kirkland, president, Eastern Division, OnePoint Patient Care.
