$750K Grant goes to Four Seasons to expand Palliative Care in the Carolinas

Posted on December 05, 2017

Four Seasons Compassion for Life, in Flat Rock, NC, received a $750,000 grant from The Duke Endowment to expand access to palliative care across North and South Carolina based on the Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) model.  Four Seasons plans to train and mentor both palliative care teams led by nurse practitioners or physician assistants, and primary care providers, in rural communities in the Carolinas, in collaboration with Duke University Medical Center, Delta Care Rx, and the ECHO Institute. “My hope is that demonstration of the value of the ECHO model regionally will allow national expansion, and that persons with serious illness in rural settings will have access to high quality palliative care,” Four Seasons Chief Medical Officer Janet Bull, MD, said.

The 21st Century is going to bring some of the most daunting challenges that the U.S. healthcare industry has ever faced. Healthcare desperately needs innovation, not just in processes and tools, but in leadership development. We need leaders who can imagine a better future, leaders who remember that the promises we make to our communities and to those we serve, is our reason for being. In that reason, that promise of caring for others, we find our core values that tell us that when we care and invest in our people, our leaders, at all levels of the organization, we make them better than they ever thought possible. When we develop our leaders, healthcare will be better than anyone could have ever imagined, and we will be prepared to climb the mountain of challenges ahead.
