Special Annoucement

June 1, 2022

The Board of Directors of Hospice North Hastings and the Bancroft Community Family Health Team (BCFHT) are very excited to announce a collaboration between our two organizations. We have entered into a shared leadership agreement that will strengthen the connection for patients, families, and caregivers between their primary care team and palliative care.

Sandra McGrath, Executive Director of the BCFHT will be overseeing the coordination of our palliative patient services as an expansion of her role with the Family Health Team. The Hospice Board is grateful to Virginia Plunkett who has stepped in a Director of Hospice Services during this time of transition. Virginia will remain as Director of Hospice Services for a period of time as we work through these changes in our organization. We are also happy to welcome Dr. Alexander Ferreira as our Medical Director and Mallory Kelly, as our Nurse Palliative Care Manager. Mallory will be working with Hospice and the Family Health Team to provide smooth transitions between primary care and palliative care.

Hospice wants to recognize all the hard work of our Board Members and volunteers, and we look forward to working together during this new chapter for our team.
