York County Hospice group forging ahead

Nonprofit aims to open end-of-life home near York, names new members to board

Friends for a York County Hospice Home, a nonprofit that hopes to open what it calls the first “end-of-life home” in the York area, has named four new members to its board of directors.

The new members of the board are:

– Amy Gohn Anstine, a CPA and department head of the small business services group in RKL’s York office.

– Tim Eskridge, an attorney at CGA Law Firm in York.

– Lori Mitrick, a director on the York County Community Foundation board and an adjunct professor of political science at York College, as well as a former county commissioner.

– Joanne Olejkowski, retired executive director of the York County Literacy Council.

Friends for a York County Hospice Home leaders said they remain hopeful they can soon find a suitable location in York County.

There already are 13 hospice providers serving the York County area, organization leaders have said, emphasizing that their home would serve as a complement to existing hospice services, not as a replacement.

“Our goal is to create a home for people who are at the end of life and who, for whatever reason, are not able to remain in their own home for the final weeks or months of life,” Friends board chair Beth Gill-MacDonald told the Business Journal in April.
