Amanda Green, MD, FACP, HMDC, internal medicine physician and Chief of Staff at Paris Regional Medical Center (PRMC), was recently granted the Hospice Medical Director Certified credential by the Hospice Medical Director Certification Board.
Dr. Green was recognized for her commitment to improving the quality of life by displaying professional competency in the hospice industry.
Hospice practice includes patient care, medication management, performance improvement, engagement in interdisciplinary group (IDG) activities, and much more. Professional certification affirms a knowledge and experience base for hospice physicians to display a commitment to their career, dedication to patient and family care, and the sustainability of the hospice organization and industry.
HMDC designation is granted for six years and is renewed through continued validation of knowledge and re-assessment.
Dr. Amanda Green graduated from Baylor College of Medicine in 1998 and completed her residency at Duke University Medical Center in 2001. She has been board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine since 2001. She had served as Associate Medical Director of Cypress Basin Hospice for 5 years
and now serves as Associate Medical Director for Summit Hospice, Hospice Plus, and Heart to Heart Hospice. Her interest in hospice has grown as she has seen the improvements in quality and quantity of life that hospice can provide, and inpatient hospice services have grown at PRMC.
