HARRISON - Thomas Pepler, RN and Manager of the Home Health and Hospice division at North Arkansas Regional Medical Center (NARMC) has been elected to serve as a member of the Board of Directors for the Hospice and Palliative Care Association of Arkansas (HPCAA).
HPCAA is Arkansas's professional organization for hospice and palliative care.
In addition, Vince Leist, CEO of NARMC said, that Pepler has been appointed to serve as the Palmetto GBA Hospice Coalition representative from Arkansas. This coalition meets three times a year at Palmetto Headquarters to present information gathered from throughout the states to Palmetto representatives and receive feedback and information to bring back to the states. He said that everyone in the market should be excited that Thomas will be taking information to Palmetto GBA and representing our area in such an important group since Palmetto GBA is one of the 12 Medicare Administrative Contractors and covers seven of the south Central US states.
