June 21, 2019 – Hospice of the Foothills has added Mary Anne Davis to the staff as their new Marketing and Events Manager.

Vivian Tipton, Executive Director of Hospice of the Foothills says, “I am very excited to bring Mary Anne Davis into our Hospice of the Foothills family. She is incredibly skilled; her marketing background and education allows us to share the incredible work of hospice with our community in new and broader ways. She brings a passion for end-of-life care and a service focus that is a perfect fit for Hospice of the Foothills.”

Davis, a western Nevada County resident since 1987, joins Hospice of the Foothills at a critical time. In addition to her marketing projects, her first event will be Hospice of the Foothills’ “Moonlight Magic” on September 13th at the Alta Sierra Country Club. It will be a fun evening to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Hospice of the Foothills. “I am excited to be here, to help further advance the education and awareness of the amazing services Hospice of the Foothills provides to patients facing life-limiting illness, as well as for the people who love them. I think many people would be surprised to learn all the services that are available to patients and their families. Hospice of the Foothills is just as much for the living as it is the dying,” adds Mary Anne.

Like other non-profit hospice organizations around the country, Hospice of the Foothills is challenged by the increasing gap between the actual cost of care and reimbursements from Medicare, Medi-Cal and private insurance. Without support from the community, non-profit hospices including Hospice of the Foothills cannot exist.

Hospice of the Foothills is a 501(c) (3) non-profit healthcare organization that has provided end-of-life hospice and palliative care to patients and families in Nevada County, Western Placer County, and surrounding communities for 40 years.
