Not Every Hospice is Alive Hospice

We constantly strive to raise the bar with our work. We are proud of the recognition Alive and its employees have received from industry watchers.

Alive won the Council on Aging’s SAGE Award for Organization of the Year: This award is given to organizations that make a significant and positive impact on the lives of older adults in Middle Tennessee.
Alive’s President/CEO Anna-Gene O’Neal was named a 2018 Woman of Influence by the Nashville Business Journal. The program recognizes women who are shaping their companies, improving our business community, and paving the way for the next generation of influential female leaders.

Anna-Gene O’Neal was also the recipient of a new award from the Nashville Business Journal, the Health Care Award: She is part of the first “class” of Health Care Award Winners, executives spurring innovation in their fields to better serve the community while upholding financial and operational goals.

Dr. Andrew Daigle, MD, FAAHPM, medical director of the Murfreesboro in-patient facility, was made a Fellow of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, one of the highest honors bestowed by the Academy to a physician. This elite honor is achieved by physicians whose professional activity is devoted to the practice of hospice and palliative medicine. Award recipients are experts in their field who have participated as members in AAHPM activities for five years or more, are board certified in hospice and palliative medicine, and have been recommended by their peers and patients.

Long-time Alive volunteer Paige Cruse was a finalist for this year’s Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Award. She has been invaluable in helping us serve grieving children and teens at our grief camps for the past ten years.

Alive was named Best Hospice in Wilson County by readers of the Lebanon Democrat.
