Connecticut Hospice CEO Barbara Pearce is interviewed by The Indispensables podcast.

Little did Barbara Pearce and Joseph Mooney know that weeks after marking their first anniversary, their biggest challenge yet, COVID-19, was just around the corner.

Hospice Care Began at Connecticut Hospice

February 1, 2021 marked the 2nd anniversary of new leadership taking over The Connecticut Hospice. It was a relief for the staff when Barbara Pearce, CEO, and Joseph Mooney, CFO, arrived bringing hope for American's 1st Hospice. And, while it is no secret of the mountain of challenges and changes the non-profit has been through over the last two years, it isn't until you hear them spoken out loud that it becomes apparent that Connecticut Hospice is resilient.

“We lost one third of our workforce, including 39% of our nurses, in ninety days in the second quarter of 2020."

In a recent interview, Barbara Pearce, CEO, shared her recollection of her last two years at Connecticut Hospice, with Bruce Tulgan, creator of The Indispensables podcast. Listening to Barbara share the numerous and sometimes grueling challenges the organization has faced during the last two years, it becomes clear why Connecticut Hospice has been around for forty-seven years -- hospice care started at and continues at Connecticut Hospice.
