Fort Worth Honors Community Healthcare of Texas for 25 Years of Compassionate Care

FORT WORTH, TX, April 20, 2021 – The City of Fort Worth honored Community Healthcare of Texas, the state’s largest not-for-profit hospice provider, with a proclamation to recognize the nonprofit’s 25th Anniversary and their contribution to the community. 

The Fort Worth City Council and Mayor Betsy Price presented the proclamation at Fort Worth City Hall on April 20, 2021, to Community Healthcare of Texas CEO Viki Jingle. Before the presentation, Mayor Price shared her personal experience with Community Healthcare of Texas and the end-of-life care they provided for her mother-in-law.

“You guys make a difficult journey much better and much easier for families and for patients,” said Mayor Price. “And particularly your care for younger children. It’s just phenomenal.”

On May 1, 1996, Community Healthcare of Texas was formed as the largest not-for-profit hospice provider in the state and since that time has cared for more than 72,000 patients and their families. With support from their generous donors, they have also provided more than $20 million in uninsured care.

In the proclamation, the City also recognized Community Healthcare of Texas as pioneers in pediatric hospice care in North Texas and their role as the first to provide end-of-life care services for children in Fort Worth and the surrounding communities.

“We are grateful for this recognition and our partnership with the City of Fort Worth,” shares Jingle. “It has been an honor to provide end-of-life care services for patients and families throughout the community since 1996, and we look forward to continuing in our tradition of compassionate care for years to come.”

The presentation can be viewed on the City of Fort Worth website starting at the 5:25 minute mark.
