US team arrives at Houghton

The Exchange Team from The Hospice of the Florida Suncoast began it's second week in Joburg SA, with a visit at the Hospice Association of  the Witwatersrand facilities located at number 50, 2nd Avenue, Houghton. 

In the picture at right, Eugeny Maraba, CPL Head of Department, (center) can be seen greeting members of our group, including, (from left) Roxie Smith, LeaAnn Horton, Cathy Lasky, (far right) Laura Mosby, Dr. Stacy Orloff, and Dr. Amy Post-Grady, (background) as they begin their tour.

A highlight of this morning's tour was a visit to the office of Arlene Angel, Intake/Patient 
Accounts Manager. With office phones ringing off the hook, Arlene, (at far left) took  time out of her busy morning to share with the group how her department manages the current patient census.  Members of the team, (right) had many questions for Ms. Angel. They were particularly interested in the contrasts between the Soweto and Houghton operations. 

After the tour, our team members joined some of the Hospice Sisters for patient visits. We'll post the stories and pictures of those visits as they return.
