ISHPEMING, Mich. (WLUC) - U.P. Home Health and Hospice is celebrating 50 years of hard work and dedication.

Staff said locations will celebrate by doing different things every month this year. This month, they will have birthday parties at the Ishpeming Senior Center. They will also target community service and support and will donate to a nonprofit. The U.P. Home Health and Hospice Director of Community Services Kori Borne said these 50 years feel like quite an accomplishment.

“We started as a hospice and home health agency in 1973,” said Borne. “We have seen changes in health care, changes in regulation during a pandemic. Just to be able to get through to the other side of it and still be here and still taking care of our community, it really is something to be proud of.”

Staff also said they want to thank the community for all their years of support and trust as they wouldn’t still be standing without them.
