On behalf of the SCHCHA Board of Directors, we would like to welcome you to the 2021 SCHCHA Annual Conference and beautiful Hilton Head Island. Over the last year, home and hospice care providers have once again demonstrated the unique and lasting value we bring to patients, families, and our entire health care system. Now more than ever, there is a growing recognition that home and hospice care is central and paramount to creating a high quality system of care designed around the needs and expectations of those we serve. We are truly facing brighter horizons ahead - and we have an opportunity to chart our course, steer our ships, and shape our growing impact while also balancing the complexity of our future environment. We are excited to offer an array of top notch educational content, networking opportunities, and solution partners with our annual conference as home and hospice care organizations face brighter horizon, and all the vast opportunities, ahead.
