Funds Will Support Uncompensated Programs and Services
Nathan Adelson Hospice, Southern Nevada’s largest non-profit hospice, announced it has received an anonymous $5 million donation for its uncompensated programs and services.
“We are overwhelmed by this donor’s generosity,” said Carole Fisher, president and CEO of Nathan Adelson Hospice. “The funds will allow us to continue to provide hospice services and programs to those who have no means to pay.”
Irwin Molasky, founder of Nathan Adelson Hospice, noted that the hospice never turns away patients, regardless of their ability to pay for care.
“We founded the hospice with the vision that no one should end the journey of life alone, afraid or in pain,” said Molasky. “Donors such as this one have helped us fulfill that commitment for nearly 40 years. This kind of support is a testament to the incredible, compassionate work done every day by the staff and caregivers at Nathan Adelson Hospice.”
Nathan Adelson Hospice has provided approximately $30million in uncompensated care to patients and their family members in the community. The hospice has provided comprehensive hospice care and supportive services to 71,000 patients since 1978.
