“Dr. Thomas Hobby has been such an amazing educator and supporter for HOSG/LHH patients, families, and employees. His bedside manners along with his patient calm approach make our patients and families feel at ease and allow them to openly participate in their Plan of Care. Dr. Hobby has this unique ability to transition our patients from acute care to end-of-life care. When he has that end-of-life conversation about diagnosis and prognosis with our patients/family he’s very compassionate and understanding and allows them to communicate their feelings. The staff at HOSG/LHH has learned so much about end-of-life care and compassion from Dr. Hobby. He leads by example!!” – Langdale Hospice House Nursing Staff
