After a national search, Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care has promoted from within to lead the organization.
The area’s largest nonprofit hospice organization has appointed David Wiley to succeed Elaine McIntosh as president and chief executive office. McIntosh is retiring after serving as CEO since 1992.
Wiley had been hired as the organization’s first chief operating officer in 2014. He was a former board member who became involved with Kansas City Hospice after his mother was served during her final illness.
Before joining Kansas City Hospice, Wiley held several leadership positions at H&R Block. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Kansas City Hospice and its subsidiary NorthCare Hospice operate in 10 counties in Kansas and Missouri. The organization has two Hospice Houses, about 450 employees and 600 volunteers. It serves about 3,800 families a year.
