Osceola resident Peggy Asmus, RN, has joined the local HCI Hospice Care Services team as a nurse.

Though she’s the newest full-time addition, Asmus has been helping out the team on weekends and on an as needed basis for the past three years.

“The local HCI Hospice Care Services team is great to work with,” Asmus said. “They really strive to provide the best care possible and improve the lives of the patients they serve and their families. I wanted to be part of that team.”

A graduate of Iowa Methodist School of Nursing, Asmus brings 30 years’ nursing experience to the team. She said she finds working with hospice patients and their families rewarding.

“It’s just nice to help patients and families out in a time of need,” Asmus said.
