Hospice should always be about the patient and their family, but unfortunately that doesn’t always happen. In the course of my career I have worked for huge hospices that care only about corporate profits. I’ve also worked with people who wanted nothing more than to give the best care possible. When I decided I was going to permanently transition from pastoring churches to hospice work, I knew I wanted a team made up of the latter.
My wife, Ashley, and I opened McCortney Family Hospice in Ada in 2004 in an effort to make sure families in our surrounding communities have access to the best that hospice has to offer. That philosophy extends to our Norman office as well. Our staff work and live in the same communities as our patients, and we have deep roots in Oklahoma. Since we’re not a branch of some larger chain, we don’t have to answer to corporate bureaucrats or profit-hungry stockholders.
I personally am blessed to be part of the third generation of McCortneys to live and operate a business in Ada, and I expect I will not be the last. I am further honored by the chance to serve my state and my industry as a member of Governor Mary Fallin’s Hospice Advisory Board.
Caring for hospice patients is a special mission for every McCortney employee, and each of us is dedicated to making our patients’ final days as high-quality as possible.
As the founder of McCortney Family Hospice, I make you one promise. Our patients and their families will always be our top priority. Always.
