wendy smith hansen, A friEND OF HOSPICE

Those of you who have been involved in the public policy arena at the Capitol will remember Wendy Smith Hansen, who served in health care policy positions at the Florida Department of Health, the Agency for Health Care Administration, and in the Florida Legislature.  Her most recent role of public service was as the health and human services policy advisor to then-Senate President Jim King from November 2000 through November 2004. 


Wendy has been very supportive of hospice and the efforts of FHPC during her public service, and now, after “sitting out” for the required period of time, she is available to represent clients before the Florida Legislature.  She has been available for regulatory matters since she left the legislature, and is able to offer a full range of services in the public policy development arena.


We appreciate Wendy Smith Hansen as a true believer in hospice, we salute her for her public service, and we wish her the best in her practice!
