Hospice names new director

Arkansas Hospice has named Susie Akin as its program director for Russellville and Conway. Akin, who lives in Pottsville, had previously served as area manager for Arkansas Hospice’s Conway office.

In her new position, Akin oversees operations in Van Buren, Johnson, Pope, Logan, Yell, Perry, Conway and Faulkner counties as well as portions of Newton, Searcy, Stone and Cleburne counties.

Akin replaces Rhonda Horton, a Russellville resident who was recently named Arkansas Hospice’s director of education and quality.

Both Akin and Horton are registered nurses who have bachelor’s degrees in nursing as well as master’s degrees in business administration.

Arkansas Hospice is a community-based, not-for-profit organization caring for more than 500 patients and their families each day in more than 30 Arkansas counties.
