HopeWest welcomes Georgia Rock, senior vice president and executive director of Hospice, who will be joining our senior leadership team in May. Rock has more than 30 years of operational experience in both home health and hospice and will serve as the leader for our organization on topics related to the hospice program.
"As we look forward to the future, Rock's position is key as HopeWest continually experiences growth," said Christy Whitney Borchard, president and CEO at HopeWest. "Her experience and leadership will set the direction of the hospice program working with our hospice team to achieve common goals as we move to the next phase of our organization."
Rock is coming to HopeWest after a 20-year career at Pathways, a large nonprofit hospice in California. There she served five years as vice president of hospice and more recently as the chief strategy officer. She holds a master's degree in business administration from University of Phoenix and bachelor's degree in communication disorders from Colorado State University. Rock was recently honored by the Silicon Valley with a Women of Influence Award.
