Southeast Missouri has a new hospice option

Sunday, November 9, 2008

DEXTER -- Tri-County Hospice Services, Inc., a member of Pyramid Home Health Services, is proud to announce that the company has recently completed a deficiency-free initial survey for licensure conducted by the Missouri Department of Health.

"Tri-County's success is rooted in the fact it has an outstanding clinical team that specializes exclusively in hospice and who understands that hospice is more than medical care; it's an affirmation of each patient's life," said Diane Chappell of Sikeston, Tri-County Hospice Services administrator. Chappell is a Registered Nurse and has been involved with hospice care in Missouri for over 15 years. She currently serves as southeast regional representative on the board of the Missouri Hospice & Palliative Care Association.

"I just feel so lucky to have the opportunity to serve the communities of Southeast Missouri as Tri-County's administrator; this company has really made the investment required to ensure patients and their families receive a level of service that can only be described as the best of the best," Chappell continued.

Additional members of the Tri-County Hospice team include Wilma Wright of Bernie who is the company's lead medical social worker; Anna Heuiser of Sikeston, patient care coordinator; The. Rev. Ed Stoner of Dexter, chaplain; and Debra Waynick of Kennett, volunteer coordinator.

Tri-County Hospice Services are available in Stoddard, Scott, New Madrid, Bollinger, Dunklin, Butler, Wayne and Cape Girardeau counties and accepts Medicare, Medicaid and most third-party payers.

It is the newest member of Pyramid Home Health Services; a group of companies which includes Tri-County In-Home Services and Tri-County Home Health and has served Southeast Missouri continuously since 1971.
