Acting director for WRSS Hospice selected

White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society has appointed a new acting executive director.

Beth Kish, who has served as the executive director for the Foothills Country Hospice and Surrey Hospice Society, has been selected for the position while longtime executive director and former White Rock mayor Catherine Ferguson takes extended medical leave.

“We are really excited to be launching a capital campaign in the fall,” she told Peace Arch News. “The board of directors felt that it was necessary to bring someone on to lead the organization through this very exciting and very busy time.”

Kish noted that the hospice will have a number of major announcements coming this fall.

“We know the community will embrace and support as we help to ensure that the (hospice) remains available and sustainable.”

Originally from Alberta, Kish moved to White Rock with her husband, Rob.
