Hospice Is Now: Bluegrass Care Navigators

Hospice of the Bluegrass has changed its name to Bluegrass Care Navigators to reflect the wide range of services the organization offers.

Hospice was founded in 1978 as Community Hospice of Lexington, which was changed to Hospice of the Bluegrass in 1986 when the organization expanded service to other parts of the state.

“That name has served us well, until now,” CEO Liz Fowler said. “Our company has grown to provide a wide range of services, including private nursing, case management, palliative care and grief care.”

The Lexington-based nonprofit, which provides services throughout Kentucky, chose the name Bluegrass Care Navigators because it now guides and provides care to more people in more ways.

“Care Navigators puts us in a role of being knowledgeable and helpful professionals,” Fowler said. “We can provide the information, assessment and resources to connect patients to the right care at the right time.”

The company’s service line names will include Bluegrass Extra Care, Bluegrass Transitional Care, Bluegrass Palliative Care, Bluegrass Hospice Care and Bluegrass Grief Care.
