|Romero to oversee all counties served by Hospice|
|Written by Lisa Jager, Brush-News Tribune|
Hospice of the Plains’ marketing director Val Romero recently was promoted to oversee all six of the counties served by the Hospice. She previously oversaw three counties. Hospice of the Plains serves Morgan, Logan, Washington, Yuma, Phillips and Sedgwick counties, has offices in Sterling and in Wray, as well as a workstation in Brush.
Romero’s promotion follows the retirement of Hospice volunteer coordinator Peg Jones, who worked in the Wray office. Romero, who resides in Brush and has an office in her home, has served as marketing director for Hospice of the Plains for three years. She said Hospice of the Plains started in Wray 17 years ago.
Hospice of the Plains provides compassionate physical, emotional and spiritual care for the terminally ill with the goal being to maximize the individual’s quality of life. It also provides comfort for the grieving and education for the communities it serves.
Romero said care for individuals is provided “wherever the patient calls home—in their home, their children’s home, a nursing home or in short-term hospital care. We step in when people are no longer trying to cure the process. We want to help people finish well and provide comfort, care and help with managing symptoms.”
