A Note From the President & CEO, Craig Borchardt
Posted on 12/28/2012
As we contend with the ever-changing healthcare world, one of the constants we continue to celebrate at Hospice Brazos Valley is the outstanding leadership and support provided by the physicians who are members of our team. We deeply appreciate our Medical Director, Thomas Borgstedte, DO (La Grange), our Associate Medical Directors, Steven Higginbotham, MD, (Bryan) and Raj Cheruku,
MD (Brenham) and our Hospice Physicians, David McClellan, MD and Robert Pope, MD (Bryan).
Each of these physicians is more than an excellent clinician. Each is an artist, combining the knowledge of hospice and palliative medicine with a bedside manner characterized by compassion and the desire that every patient be treated with dignity and hope. Each is the ﬁnest of educators, teaching patients and staff the intricacies of care while helping meet the end-of-life goals and expectations of patients and families. Each delivers care with a passion that is contagious, not only to insure that symptoms are managed, but to facilitate an end-of-life experience that is fulﬁlling and hopeful, even while contending with terminal illness.
The physicians who form our medical team are our leaders. They are also our colleagues. Most of all they are our friends and are instrumental to our ability to provide the ﬁnest palliative and hospice care in Texas. For each of them we are truly grateful.
