Houston Hospice Capital Campaign Video: Dianne Gilbert, RN, PCM


Construction is well under way on the Houston Hospice Margaret Cullen Marshall Hospice Care Center, but we still need your support. Twelve patient rooms are being added to our third floor to allow us to provide inpatient hospice care for additional patients. In the clip above, Mark Howard, Houston Hospice Financial Development Committee Member, interviews Dianne Gilbert, RN, PCM about why she thinks the additional inpatient space is needed. Dianne interfaces with patients every day and knows firsthand the impact the additional rooms will make. Gilbert said, “At 3 in the morning when I get a phone call that there is someone at the end of their life or there is someone in great pain . . . we need to be able to bring those patients in so that we can help them control their pain or provide them comfort in their final days.” Gilbert sees between 40-60 patients weekly.
