After 30 years, Hospice Foundation of Palm Beach County Inc. has a new name. It is now known as Palm Beach Island Hospice Foundation.

Board president Mark Cook said the change “clarifies our location, but our mission is the same … to provide resources for programs that support end-of-life care for patients and their families.”

Cook revealed the name change and new logo at a board of trustees meeting.

Through the generosity of donors, the foundation raised money to build the Charles W. Gerstenberg Hospice Center at 5300 East Ave., West Palm Beach, not far from St. Mary’s Medical Center.

In 2015, the foundation board committed to raising $1.8 million for renovations to the center and innovative programs, such as telemedicine and music therapies, Cook said.
