PEW Stateline Article: COVID Renewing Push to Expand Palliative Care
In a thoughtful article published by PEW Stateline, journalist Michael Ollove examines the value of community-based palliative care in light of the COVID-19 pandemic on the U.S. Ollove spoke with several thought leaders, NHPCO provider members, and family members to underscore the value of a community-based palliative care model. Read β€œLong-Haul COVID Renews Push to Expand Palliative Care” on the PEW website.

This is our 15th year Walking in honor of our loved ones we have lost and supporting the wonderful cause known as Iowa City Hospice! Iowa City Hospice was there and will be there again if we ever need them, it might have been the most difficult times in our lives but they were there to hold us up and offer comfort in our darkest days. They helped Mike and Viola be at home surrounded by their loved ones for their final days, for that we are forever grateful. Thank you Iowa City Hospice from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work and dedication, but most of all thank you for being our strength when we needed it most.

Walking goal met! Bonus: seeing the full moon rise! #ichwalkfordignity2021
It was a great day to get out and walk for an organization that adds life to our community.
My mother recently passed and Iowa City Hospice nursing team was the best. We brought mom home so that we could all be with her. While it was hard the nurses that supported us were amazing. They provided comfort to our mother and us! Top notch team of professionals!!
Today we walked in memory of Sarah Meyer!
The Rinehart’s walked today in memory of our Sister-in-Law and our Aunt Sarah Meyer.
