Hospice of Chenango County Executive Director retires,
NORWICH – After nine years of serving as Executive Director at Hospice & Palliative Care of Chenango County, Patricia Outhouse is reportedly retiring and passing on the torch to Kendall Drexler, LMSW.
“I close a forty year healthcare career with a lot of gratitude for the work that I have been able to do and the people that I have had the pleasure to work with,” Outhouse said. “It’s been an honor to help serve the people of Chenango County and I am confident that the organization will continue to provide the highest quality end of life care to this community.”
Drexler – a Chenango County native who graduated from Sherburne-Earlville Central Schools in 2003 – has taken on many roles in her seven years at Hospice including Volunteer Coordinator, Clinical Outreach Coordinator, and Development Coordinator. She received her BSW from Albany in 2007, and her MSW with a concentration in non-profit management and program development from Syracuse in 2010.
“Having worked at Hospice of Chenango County for the past seven years, I am very excited to assume leadership of the agency,” said Drexler. “The staff is compassionate, caring, and committed to easing the suffering of the dying in Chenango County. They are some of the most committed individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with.”
Drexler went on to say, “In a healthcare world that is ever changing, I am looking forward to seeing what additional services we might be able to provide the community in the coming years.”
