Doctors honored by Family First Hospice

A luncheon recognizing the continued support of the local medical community for Family First Hospice was held Tuesday at La Galleria, where Drs. William Kinzie and Tonya Youngblood received special thanks.
“This luncheon is an honor for you,” Michelle Erisman of Family First said to all the doctors, nurses and medical staff in attendance. “For making a difference to Family First Hospice. I’m really excited to bring the community together.”
Family First is in the process of celebrating five years in Ennis and a celebration is in the works, according to Bob Woods, one of the founders of the healthcare business.
Kim Woods, his wife and co-founder, said it was because of the doctors and nurses who had faith in Family First Hospice that they have succeeded in Ennis.
“You trust us with your patients and we thank you,” Woods said. “We are going strong and we have the community to thank for that.”
According to Kim Woods, as of a week ago, 1,111 patients had been served by Family First Hospice, and more than 500 of those came from Ennis.
Ennis Regional Medical Center CEO Dave Anderson spoke at the event, praising Ennis for their tight medical community.
“We do interact with one another and we are interdependent on one another,” Anderson said.
“This community supports the hospital and in return we are trying to make the hospital a safe place that welcomes its residents. We’re getting to where you can trust us.”
Anderson introduced Sherrie Watkins, the newest Chief Nursing Officer for ERMC.
“Just give us a little bit of patience,” Anderson said regarding changes that are taking place at the new hospital to make the service as state-of-the-art as the complex is. “We know what to do and we have the staff to do it.”
Kim Woods closed the program with a presentation to Dr. Kinzie thanking him and Dr. Youngblood, who was unable to attend the event, for their continued faith and support of Family First Hospice.
