Monday, August 11, 2014
Archbold Medical Center recently announced Lisa Phillips, RN, BSN, as the new administrator of Hospice of Southwest Georgia.
Phillips, who is originally from Hahira, Georgia, has 13 years of nursing experience, eight years of which specifically focused in healthcare leadership and management. She earned an Associate of Science degree in nursing from Manatee Community College in Bradenton, Florida, and a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the University of Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona.
“Growing up in South Georgia, I had always heard great things about Archbold. So when my husband received his retirement orders from the military and we saw that Hospice of Southwest Georgia had an opening, we truly felt this was the place we needed to be,” said Phillips. “It’s important to me to be associated with an organization that promotes professionalism and community outreach. Archbold does this so well, so it was a natural fit.”
In her new role with Hospice of Southwest Georgia, Phillips will be responsible for the operations of the Archbold hospice agency and will provide management and supervision of all nursing and professional services.
“I’m very happy to have found quality, long-term staff at Hospice of Southwest Georgia who are truly dedicated to serving their communities and are willing to go that extra mile to ensure our patient’s needs are met,” said Phillips. “I strongly believe in providing compassionate, quality care to patients and families in one of the most difficult times of their lives. Hospice care helps to preserve our patient’s dignity through a dedicated, multi-disciplinary team who understands not only the patient’s needs at the end of life, but also the needs of the family and caregivers.”
Phillips looks forward to enhancing Hospice of Southwest Georgia’s community education and outreach programs, and growing the agency’s volunteer discipline to help ensure patients and their family’s needs are met.
“I’ve seen first-hand how the Hospice of Southwest Georgia staff represents the true meaning of compassion and quality in every aspect of the care we provide,” said Phillips. “I’m thrilled to be a part of Archbold’s Hospice of Southwest Georgia team, and I hope to raise the bar as we continue to serve our patients and our communities.”
