Ogeechee Area Hospice Board of Directors honored their long-time attorney, Vanderver (Van) R. Pool at its March meeting.
Ogeechee Area Hospice’s founding and former Executive Director, Nancy Bryant, was on hand for the special presentation. Ms. Bryant, on behalf of the board and staff, expressed sincere thanks to the Statesboro attorney as he retires from private practice. A portrait of Mr. Pool was unveiled and will be placed in the agency’s Bethany Community Center.
For over thirty years, Pool has selflessly rendered legal representation, support and professional guidance to Ogeechee Area Hospice. Despite all his other obligations and responsibilities, Pool has always been committed to safeguarding Bulloch County’s only hometown, community funded, non-profit hospice.
Pool has followed Ogeechee Area Hospice throughout its journey from inception as Ogeechee Home Health in 1994 to its groundbreaking as Statesboro’s first and only hospice inpatient facility. Pool has been a guiding light as Ogeechee Area Hospice navigated the paths necessary to create such a vital service to our community.
Ogeechee Area Hospice Executive Director, Vanessa Ramirez, noted, “We will never be able to adequately thank Van for his dedicated service to our hospice and our community.” Ogeechee Area Hospice Board of Directors, physicians, staff, and volunteers thank Pool for his service and wish him a happy retirement.
