LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Hospice Services of Lake County has announced the retirement of Executive Director Cindy Sobel after seven years of dedicated service to the agency and community.

“Since she joined Hospice Services in 2015, Sobel has demonstrated strong, genuine leadership,” said Don Hubbard, president of the Hospice Services of Lake County Board of Directors. “Under her leadership, Hospice Services has made tremendous strides in building a talented clinical team serving patients and families with skill and compassion. Cindy’s leadership maintained our role as an anchor health care provider in the community; and successfully navigated the remarkable challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“It’s been my personal mission to care for people who are transitioning into the next phase of their life,” said Sobel. “I feel so fortunate to have been part of the hospice industry which provides medical, emotional, and spiritual support to those facing the challenges associated with a serious health condition. I am leaving an extraordinary team of professionals to carry on this sacred calling.”

Hubbard added, “On behalf of the entire board of directors, we are incredibly grateful for the time Cindy has devoted to Hospice Services, and we wish her the very best in retirement. The board is deeply committed to conducting a thoughtful, extensive search and selecting an executive director that will continue to position Hospice Services as a regionally recognized, community-oriented health organization providing quality care for Lake County residents.”

As the board conducts the search process for the next executive director, Hospice Services, under a competent leadership team, will continue to deliver on its mission to provide high quality, patient-centered care to its diverse community members.
