LEXINGTON, N.C. (Sept. 13, 2016) – Dr. Jennifer Davis, HMDC, Medical Director at Hospice of Davidson County, was recently granted the Hospice Medical Director Certified credential by the Hospice Medical Director Certification Board. Dr. Davis was recognized for her commitment to improving the quality of life by displaying professional competency in hospice care.

Hospice practice includes patient care, medication management, performance improvement, engagement in interdisciplinary group activities, and more. Professional certification affirms a knowledge and experience base for hospice physicians to display commitment to their career, dedication to patient and family care, and the sustainability of the hospice organization and care.

Dr. Davis is a 2006 graduate of the University of Texas Medical Branch. In 2009, she completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine and in 2010, a fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at the Hospice and Palliative CareCenter in Winston Salem, N.C. 

In 2015, Hospice of Davidson County welcomed Dr. Davis as its Medical Director. In addition, she holds an adjunct faculty position as an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Section of Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine, at Wake Forest School of Medicine. 

“Dr. Davis is a compassionate and astute hospice provider and team leader,” said Hospice of Davidson County CEO, Laura Owen. “Obtaining the HMDCB certification is voluntary, so this is just another example of how Dr. Davis continues to go above and beyond to provide quality end-of-life care for our patients and their families.” 

The Hospice Medical Director Certification Board (HMDCB) serves as an independent, not-for-profit certifying body to administer a certification program for hospice medical directors and other physicians who provide hospice care for patients. The mission of HMDCB is to relieve suffering and improve quality of life by promoting the excellence and professional competency of hospice medical directors. 

HMDC designation is granted for six years and is renewed through continued validation of knowledge and re-assessment.
