Next, the group made a lunch time visit to Meadowview Regional Medical Center (MRMC) where they enjoyed an overview of what was new and upcoming at the hospital by CNO, Michael Pittman. PrimaryPlus and its trademarked LEAP program were also on-hand to provide free health screenings to participants.
Later in the day, the group continued with its agenda touring other health and human related services in the Buffalo Trace area visiting both the Dialysis Center and the Maysville Cancer Treatment Center.

agle Riders of the Hillsboro, OH Eagles club #1161 recently conducted a Poker Run with proceeds benefiting Hospice of Hope. Event was coordinated by Judy Roberts who recently had firsthand experience with our organization.
"My first real knowledge of Hospice of Hope came when I was taking care of my mother who suffered from Alzheimer's Disease. With virtually no help from family members, I turned to the medical community for help. Hospice of Hope came into my home the last few months of her life and what a blessing it was. They were there for me 24/7 if needed. Hospice of Hope had someone there to help me through the last hours that were both painful to me and to my mother. I can never thank these people enough for everything they did for me and for my mother!"
