Media representatives are vital in educating community members about the resources and assistance available to them. We believe that everyone in our community should have access to quality end-of-life care. Costs for hospice services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans, although Willamette Valley Hospice does not turn anyone away due to inability to pay. Lack of knowledge about hospice services remains the largest barrier to people receiving hospice care in the last 6 months of life.

We are happy to assist you in gathering information and arranging interviews to ensure you get what is needed for your story. For assistance, please e-mail either Melissa Lindley, Community Outreach Coordinator, or Linda Hays, Associate Director of Community Development or reach them at 503.588.3600.
