"As the CEO of North Country Healthcare, I am also keenly aware of the financial support such programs require from their community partners and other stakeholders. We are both thrilled to be able to support the Gala as Title Sponsors in the memories of those we’ve lost.”

The proceeds from the Home Health & Hospice Gala will support home health, palliative, hospice and long-term care programs, along with ancillary services provided by the agency.

Raising these funds to help cover the uncovered costs of employees who travel the territory seven days per week, 365 days per year is vital to continuing to provide quality home health, palliative, hospice and long-term care to the agency's patients throughout two of the northern-most counties in New Hampshire.
