"It is truly an honor to lead Weatherbee's amazing team of hospice professionals and to continue to serve our hospice clients across the country. Our focus has always been and will continue to be on providing value-added hospice products and consulting services to allow our clients to focus on the most important thing – high quality end-of-life care," said Cooley.
