Meet our new Board Chair,

Joyce Testa Salhoot, MSW, MHA


Houston Hospice is pleased to welcome Joyce Testa Salhoot as our new Board Chair. Joyce began her service on the Board four years ago when asked by her long-time friend and former Board

Chair, Michele Sabino.  Having had many close friends who spent their final days in our care, she was familiar with the organization and its good work.  Joyce brings a great deal of expertise to the Board from her notable career. Now retired, she spent half of her career as a social worker for TIRR and the other half in hospital administration at Memorial Hermann Hospital. Originally from Niagara Falls, Joyce moved to Houston after completing her Masters of Social Work.

Goals for her Board tenure include: building a network that will support growth; ensuring the longevity of the nonprofit hospice model; and growing awareness of hospice care as a viable end-of-life care option among diverse communities. This last point is a driving passion for Joyce. “I am committed to leading efforts to foster and maintain an environment where Diversity and Inclusion are valued and achieved for the benefit of Houston Hospice staff, volunteers, patients and families.”

President & CEO Rana McClelland, MBA, echoes these thoughts: “I look forward to strategically integrating the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives developed under Joyce’s leadership into everyday operations. Our goal is to attract a diverse workforce and provide accessible services, delivered in a way that respects the needs of each individual and does not exclude anyone.”
