Hospice honors those committed to mission
Vernon. Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice recognizes the work of individual who advanced hospice.
In 1980 Julia and Joseph Quinlan founded Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice in loving memory of their daughter.
April 15 will marked the 39th year as the preeminent hospice for Sussex, Warren and Pike counties. As the only local, non-profit hospice the mission of Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice has remained strong and been carried by many to ensure the best possible care is extended to patients and their family members in need of hospice support.
To recognize the efforts of those individuals whose work has advanced the cause of hospice, the organization has planned a Hospice Honors Banquet to be hosted on Thursday, April 18 at Bear Brook Valley, 23 Players Boulevard, Fredon, NJ at 6:00 p.m.
“This memorable evening is designed to highlight where we are now and to honor the people who have helped us get there,” said John Quinlan, Director of Foundation for Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice.
Since the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice opened their doors to the community, the personal connection between the organization and the area residents has been the cornerstone of its growth and development. From the famous court battle and landmark decision that opened the Quinlan’s’ eyes to the need for end-of-life care for patients and families; to the creation of the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice; to the staff and volunteers that work diligently to help so many; to the community business leaders that reach out to the organization to help their mission.
