Our Administrator, Bernice Kotlarz,
is a Registered Nurse with over 30 years of experience. She has
been a part of many aspects of nursing including:
• Hospice • Home
Health • Intensive Care • Emergency Room • IV Therapy • Nutrition
In the early 1980’s Bernice began to do home health
visits, including hospice visits, part time. This is where she
learned the hospice philosophy and realized the importance of
end of life care. Bernice’s passion for hospice care grew and
she was working full time in home health by the 1990’s.
In 2004, Bernice became Director of Nursing and then Administrator at a large
corporate hospice. She quickly grew tired of budgetary restrictions that were
placed on her and her patients. In 2007, at the urging of her family, Bernice
started Loving Hands Hospice. She wanted high quality care that would provide
her patients with a unmatched level of dignity and comfort.
