San Diego, CA 92025 – WEBWIRE – Thursday, December 12, 2019
Michael Milward, CEO of Hospice of Santa Cruz County and a founding member of California Hospice Network (CHN), accepted the Adaptive Business Leaders’ “Innovator in Healthcare” Award on behalf of CHN at ABL’s 22nd Innovations in Healthcare Awards event. The Award recognizes organizations that have developed and brought to market innovative approaches and technologies that increase access to, and reduce the cost of quality healthcare.
“California Hospice Network is a bold step towards ensuring that nonprofit and community-based hospice care continues to be offered throughout the state, particularly in the face of increasing for-profit competition,” explained Mimi Grant, President of Adaptive Business Leaders. “At the event, Michael Milward shared how its ‘Stronger Together’ model is already proving itself through shared best practices and economies of scale for its members.”
California Hospice Network is focused on providing strategic and operational support to local, community-based nonprofit hospice providers by developing an affiliate geographic footprint that serves a significant percentage of the California population. The organization is actively recruiting additional nonprofit hospice partners to strengthen the network’s reach and scale.
“California Hospice Network is four months old, and already our affiliate members are realizing significant cost savings due to the Network’s purchasing power. Our members are also sharing best practices in systems that benefit patient care,” explained Jan Jones, RN, BSN, CEO of California Hospice Network. “We believe that every person in California should have access to mission-driven, advanced illness and end-of-life care that meets their needs as defined by them as well as their communities. California Hospice Network is bringing together nonprofit hospice organizations that are committed to providing exceptional end-of-life care.”
