Dr. Karla A Hirshorn, Hospice Associate Medical Director at Interim Healthcare of the Upstate, was granted the Hospice Medical Director Certified credential by the Hospice Medical Director Certification Board. Hirshorn was recognized for her commitment to improving the quality of life by displaying professional competency in the hospice industry.

Hospice practice includes patient care, medication management, performance improvement and engagement in interdisciplinary group (IDG) activities. Professional certification affirms a knowledge and experience base for hospice physicians to display commitment to their career, dedication to patient and family care, and the sustainability of the hospice organization and industry. HMDC designation is granted for six years and is renewed through continued validation of knowledge and re-assessment.

“It is an honor and a privilege to care for a patient and their loved ones at the end of life,” said Hirshorn. “I am blessed to be a part of the passionate healthcare team at Interim, who brings comfort and dignity to the dying and makes their last days full of life. Achieving the Hospice Medical Director Certification allows me to better serve our patients and their families.”

The Hospice Medical Director Certification Board (HMDCB) serves as an independent, not-for-profit certifying body to administer a certification program for hospice medical directors and other physicians who provide hospice care for patients. For more information, visit www.hmdcb.org.
