Karin Johnson

Karin started her healthcare career as a social worker, but in 1997 when her second child was born with a life-limiting illness, she realized she had to have a change in direction in her career. Karin has always felt that hospice is “a calling”, and that call came when her second child was born. While Karin has many strengths as a social worker, her life experience has allowed her to get a deeper understanding of both sides of the story, pertaining to the traditional versus the palliative care directions in healthcare.

Karin has worked for some of the largest national hospice providers. These experiences have provided her with the insight and knowledge that have led to her continued success.  “It is where we have been that helps us learn where we need to go” says Karin.  She has a unique ability to recognize the strengths of her hospice team and leverage those strengths to meet the needs of the patients and their families. Over her tenure as an administrator in hospice, she has consistently acquired excellent quality scores and almost zero percent staff turnover, as a testament to her dedication to excellence.

Kim Johnson R.N.

Kim’s career journey began as a registered nurse over 20 years ago. She was able to practice nursing in multiple areas of healthcare but over time she moved into taking care of the elderly patients realizing that this is where her heart belongs. Kim sees the end of life as a special time near the end of one’s journey, where she gets to help patients reflect upon their lives. Kim sees this as an incredible honor to be a part of the lives of her patients and their families.
