Plato said, “Excellence is rare.” While today, excellence has been reduced to a derivative, utilized mostly to signify something of quality, if we view this word within its Ancient Greek context, we find that what Plato said remains true.

In its purest form, excellence is a practice, and an ideal wrapped in reverence for an achievement utilizing clear vision and raw determination in order to reach higher than anyone previously. When Plato spoke of excellence, he was telling a great story.

Weathering seasons of economic uncertainty, the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s, and an on-going battle against the daunting stigma still surrounding the word “hospice,” Providence Trinity- Care Hospice and its Foundation has persevered, delivering support for the comfort and care of those who need it, regardless of race, religion, or financial status, for decades. Clearly, TrinityCare has one of those great stories, which is why the Foundation has chosen “excellence” as our theme for our 2011 Annual Report.

Certainly, 2011 was not without its challenges, but we came through it stronger, and imbued with a renewed sense of determination to push on to bigger and brighter dreams of care, education, and even a new location. But this story would not be told, our dreams would not be feasible, and 2011’s Accomplishments would not have been possible were it not for you, our loyal friends, our community, our volunteers, and our donors.
