hospice of wk logoKENTUCKY (6/19/16) — Glenn Taylor, Chairman of the Board of Directors, is pleased to announce the appointment of Gay Rogers as President and Chief Executive Officer of Hospice of Western Kentucky.

Rogers will assume this position, effective June 20, 2016.

Taylor said, "We are pleased to have Gay join the Hospice team. We are also thankful to our employees and management team for their hard work through this transitional period. Because of that commitment and dedication, the Search Committee was able to take the time needed to complete the extensive search process." There was considerable interest in the position, with several highly qualified candidates. The Search Committee and the Board are very pleased to have made an appointment that they feel will be extremely successful for Hospice of Western Kentucky.

Rogers comes to Hospice of Western Kentucky with over 25 years of successful executive leadership experience in hospice, leading programs from 10-600 employees, including operational and strategic oversight, clinical program development, hospice inpatient unit, palliative care, home hospice care, business development, human resources and finance, with a patient census from 25-650 patients. She most recently has been working with hospices in Boston and Vermont. In addition, Gay has a history of active involvement in state and federal regulatory bodies governing hospice operations. She has been an active member of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (a non-profit membership organization representing hospice and palliative care programs and professionals in the United States), and several state hospice associations.

Rogers grew up in southeastern Ohio, with an educational background as a Registered Nurse (University of Kentucky/Lexington, Ky.); B.S. degree in Organizational/Human Resources Development Management (Palm Beach Atlantic University/West Palm Beach, Fla.); and M.S. degree in Organizational Leadership (Palm Beach Atlantic University/West Palm Beach, Fla.).

"It is indeed my honor to serve this team of passionate individuals who have given so much to those who are journeying through life's final chapter," states Rogers. "My vision is to continue the extraordinary work of Hospice of Western Kentucky in serving the community, while thriving as we face ever-changing times within the hospice and healthcare arena. I am grateful to the Board and staff for their work and service to this hospice program."

Richard Wilson, Search Committee Chair and Board member, said, "We welcome Ms. Rogers to the Hospice of Western Kentucky family. Her experience, along with her compassionate character and passion for hospice, will play a pivotal role as we extend our excellent care to more families in need."
