Less than a year to the March 2012 announcement of the plans to build a 10-bed inpatient hospice unit, the ribbon was cut on Feb. 20 for the Community Hospice Center at St. Vincent’s Medical Center Riverside following a dedication and blessing ceremony.

The 34-year-old nonprofit hospice provider serves residents in five counties, at home, in long term care and assisted living facilities, in hospitals and at its now six inpatient care centers. “I often hear from family members whose lives we’ve touched, and I’m humbled by their words,” states Susan Ponder-Stansel, president and CEO of Community Hospice. “It is an amazing thing we do – helping people during a most important time in their lives.”
