“Maite’s combined clinical and educational experience, as well as her passion for providing exceptional palliative care to patients and their families, will be a tremendous asset to our team,” said Crossroads CEO Perry Farmer. “We look forward to working together as we continue to advance and expand our delivery of palliative care.”

Uribe said, “I am delighted to be part of the Crossroads team where there is such a long tradition of providing the right care at the right time as we constantly strive to elevate the care narrative.”
