    “I am committed to providing the best possible hospice and palliative care for my patients,” said Shen. “As the demand for and utilization of hospice care continues to grow, it is increasingly important for physicians to practice accurately and competently by achieving the highest level of specialized training available. Our patients and their families expect and deserve the highest standards of care, and by achieving this certification, I am helping to further distinguish our program from all others.”
