Join the Care Partners Board!
A not-for-profit Hospice and Palliative Care Service
Care Partners is an independent, community-based, not-for-profit hospice serving the Portland Metropolitan area for the past 35 years. We provide quality, individualized, "boutique" level palliative and hospice services to over 400 patients and their families each year.
Care Partners is dedicated to shaping the future of end-of-life care in Oregon. We are working with partners across the state on a new and innovative approach to preserving and developing the unique not-for-profit model for hospice care in Oregon. In 2018 we will launch the Oregon Nonprofit Hospice Alliance to assure that Oregonians have access to the exceptional care provided by nonprofit hospices accountable to boards of directors made up of volunteers from local communities for years to come.
In a health care landscape dominated by corporate interests, Care Partners remains focused on the core values of volunteerism, service, compassionate care, and changing how Oregonians live out their final days. We are looking for individuals who share our passion for excellence and are willing to assist us in our relentless pursuit to make a significant difference in the lives of patients and families coping with serious illnesses in the home; long-term care, and community setting.
