(Nov. 14, 2018) – From Lookout Mountain to the Tennessee River, several area institutions and organizations joined Hospice of Chattanooga in illuminating their buildings to “Paint Chattanooga Purple” beginning on Monday, Nov. 5, in observation of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.

“We want to thank our partners for bathing Chattanooga in purple luminescence in honor of the care given to those facing their end-of-life journeys,” Tracy Wood, president and CEO of Hospice of Chattanooga, said.

“Providing uplifting and sustaining care for those who approach the end of their lives -- and for the families who remain to cherish their memories -- is our ongoing mission at Hospice of Chattanooga. We believe all who play a role in serving our community in this life-affirming way make the Tennessee Valley a special place,” Wood said.

  • Chambliss Law Firm
