In this role, Pugh will oversee and work alongside Southeast Hospice team members on business development initiatives for each of the company’s locations throughout Alabama.
“We are excited to be able to provide excellent hospice services in the state of Alabama, and we are proud to have Suzanne Pugh joining our executive team,” says Joette Brown, Vice President of Southeast Hospice. “Mrs. Pugh has extensive knowledge in the healthcare setting, and her passion of caring for others will be beneficial to the community and the patients we serve. We are blessed to have someone with her knowledge and experience.”
