Health Pro – Hospice of Marion County

Rick Bourne, CEO

With more than 30 years in health care, Rick Bourne, Hospice of Marion County’s new CEO, is passionate about easing the burden that goes along with end-of-life decision making. Put simply, do your loved ones a favor and create a living will and health surrogate.

“Once established, there is no guessing what someone would prefer or want in the case of a health crisis,” he says. “It relieves the family of having to make difficult decisions without knowing.”

A living will expresses your end-of-life health care wishes and names a health care surrogate should you no longer be able to make decisions for yourself.

“It’s never too early until it’s too late,” Bourne says. “It’s best to complete these tasks while you are healthy and can assure everyone of your wishes. No attorneys need to be involved and there are no fees.”

New to the Ocala area, Bourne is recognized as a visionary in his field who sees trends as they emerge and creates innovative solutions to meet new challenges.

“April 16 is National Healthcare Decisions Day and I encourage everyone who hasn’t completed an advance directive to make it a priority,” he says.
