Centennial Hospice, one of the only Joint Commissionaccredited hospice and palliative care providers in Oklahoma City, opened an Alternate Administrative Office (AAO) in Norman, OK. The new office, located at 2600 Van Buren Street near the intersection of I-35 and OK State Highway 9, officially opened on November 1, 2018. Locally owned and headquartered in OKC, Centennial Hospice is a leading provider of highquality hospice and palliative care services, delivering medical, emotional, spiritual and supportive services to patients, families and caregivers experiencing life-limiting illnesses. Since its founding in 2007 by a father and son from Edmond, Centennial Hospice has provided exceptional care to thousands of patients and families in 11 counties surrounding the OKC metropolitan area. Centennial Hospice is a 2018 Hospice Honors award recipient for providing the highest level of quality as measured by Medicare’s Hospice Quality Reporting Program.
“Our incredible team of caregivers has provided hospice care to Oklahomans for nearly 11 years and we are thrilled to open a new office in Norman,” said Kevin Offel, President & CEO of Centennial Hospice. “While we have always serviced patients and families in South OKC, Moore, and Norman from our primary OKC office, this new AAO in Norman enhances our ability to more quickly address those patients as well as reach additional communities throughout Grady, Garvin, McClain, Pottawatomie, and Seminole counties. This includes patients and families around communities like Minco, Anadarko, Chickasha, Rush Springs, Pauls Valley, Wynnewood, Stratford, Konawa, Seminole, and others.” Founder and Board Chairman Michael Crooks credits Centennial’s experienced team of clinicians and support staff for its ability to expand service area coverage in Oklahoma. “We could never have considered market expansion without the exceptional service provided by our highly trained team of physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, therapists, volunteers and others,” said Mr. Crooks.
