After nearly three years as CEO of Hope Hospice, Victoria Emmons is following her heart to Montana to be closer to her daughter, son-in-law and precious grandson.
“During the past 35 years, Hope Hospice has remained a treasure in the community, available to so many in need,” says Emmons. “It’s been an honor and privilege to serve the community as head of this incredible non-profit organization.”
Emmons has held positions in the health care field for more than 30 years, serving as vice president at several Bay Area hospitals, CEO of a community clinic consortium in Silicon Valley, and, since 2012, CEO of Hope Hospice in Dublin, a nonprofit hospice founded in 1979. Hope Hospice serves patients and their families in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.
Passionate about educating the community on the importance of advance care planning and having the “conversation” about end-of- life wishes, Emmons is a founding member of the Steering Committee for the East Bay Conversation Project. She is currently a member of the Rotary Club of Pleasanton.
“Personally, I am very excited for Victoria and her decision to enter this new chapter in her life,” says Captain Craig Eicher, president of the Hope Hospice Board of Directors. “Her selfless contributions to Hope Hospice and local service groups will have a long lasting and positive impact for our organization and the communities we serve. She is a valued member of the Hope Hospice team and will certainly be missed.” Eicher says that the Board of Directors will appoint an interim leader as they conduct a nationwide search to find a new CEO.
