Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope Healthcare, has been elected Vice Chair of the National Partnership for Hospice Innovation, a nationwide partnership of community-based nonprofit, hospice, palliative and advanced illness care providers.
A recognized authority on hospice care, Beckwith was a founding director of NPHI and has been a member of the organization since 2015. Beckwith also represented Hope and NPHI in a September meeting with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma to discuss reducing regulatory burdens affecting hospices today.
“Being involved with organizations like NHPI allows us to keep abreast of health care models around the country and share our best practices,” said Beckwith. “It supports Hope’s mission of elevating the quality of life for those who need hope most and ensures we are giving the best comfort and care possible throughout Southwest Florida,” Beckwith said.
