Delaware Hospice Honors President and CEO Susan D. Lloyd, MSN, RN
Date:11/2/2007

WILMINGTON, Del., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Staff and board members of Delaware Hospice honored their President and Chief Executive Officer, Susan D. Lloyd, MSN, RN, for 20 years of service at the annual Staff Recognition Dinner.

Since 1987, Susan Lloyd has guided Delaware Hospice from a fledgling grassroots organization to what it is today--a model of meeting community need through community support with quality and compassion.

In 1987, the five-year old Delaware Hospice had served 1,000 patients with a staff of 50 and 275 volunteers. Twenty years later, Delaware Hospice has served nearly 30,000 patients with a staff of 250, and the assistance of 650 volunteers. Founding members of the organization envisioned an organization providing care in patients' homes in New Castle County. Delaware Hospice presently serves patients statewide in homes, nursing homes, hospitals, and soon will open its own "Delaware Hospice Center."

When counselors identified the need for special bereavement support for children and teenagers, Susan directed a committee that studied the issues, researched, and created the New Hope Program. New Hope has helped 1,500 of Delaware's youth face and deal with the loss of loved ones through various means, including one-on-one counseling, group activities, and a four-day camp with special bereavement projects. The successful program has been showcased on Dateline NBC and has become a model for hospices nationwide.

Likewise, when it became apparent that there were individuals "falling between the cracks,"--not appropriate for hospice care, but in desperate need of help--Susan's team created the Transitions Program. Transitions offers non-medical support to seriously ill individuals, helping them take advantage of community resources that are available or assigning a volunteer to provide transportation or to run errands for them.
