Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Freshly-minted president and CEO of Cornerstone Hospice Charles "Chuck" Lee started his tenure at the helm of the seven-county nonprofit earlier this week with a "Meet 'n Greet" of staff, community and friends at the organization's Highlands County operational center on Sparta Road.
"It is worthy to note that out of an 8,000-plus square mile central Florida service geography, multiple operational centers from Lake and Sumter counties on the north to Highlands and Hardee counties on our south, our new CEO marks the taking of the helm of Cornerstone Hospice at 8:00 a.m. on his first day on the job right here in Sebring!" said Deb Harley, executive director for the nonprofit's Highlands-Hardee-Polk region.
"Yes, staff here in Sebring is ecstatic that CEO Chuck Lee started his tenure right here at our office, listening to our staff and sharing his vision for the growth of Cornerstone Hospice here in the Highlands and Hardee region," said Sara Taylor, RN and supervisor at the Hospice's Sebring office.
Lee assured everyone that they'll have the physician support, tools and resources required for continued growth in the Highlands and Hardee region. "I am committed for us to have all resources in place to allow us to expand as opportunities arise. I see our census has been growing here and you have my support and encouragement so we can manage issues that accompany growth and professional patient care ... Patients and family care always comes first," said the new CEO.
