Funds Donated to SOMC Hospice in Memory of Dr. Suzann BonzoPosted on 12/27/2022

In honor of the first anniversary of Dr. Suzann Bonzo’s passing, her family and work family, which was more like family, donated funds in her memory.
Dr. Bonzo practiced medicine in Portsmouth for an incredible 40 years. Due to her commitment to medicine, hospice and palliative care, countless patients and families have been touched throughout her years of service and beyond.
Sandy Bonzo, a niece of Dr. Bonzo and Keri Kuhn, CNP, who used to practice with Dr. Bonzo, recently made donations in her honor.
These funds will help staff earn certification or recertification as a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse (CHNP) or Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse Assistant (CHNPA). These learning opportunities are optional, and in the past, if an employee wanted to apply for this certification, they would have to pay for it out of their pocket. This will be an ongoing educational opportunity for staff, so donations will continue to be accepted to allow even more staff to become certified.
A special thank you to them for their support. Their donations will continue Dr. Bonzo’s legacy as she dedicated her life’s work to growing the hospice program in southern Ohio.
