James B. & Billie Keegan Leadership Series
The Leadership Series seeks to inspire others to serve our community as
James & Billie Keegan so generously did for more than 50 years. This
annual spring luncheon brings education and information to Sonoma County
through local and national public speakers. Each year, outstanding community
leaders are recognized who exemplify James and Billie Keegan’s philosophy
of “giving back” to the community. Proceeds from the Leadership
Series help support Memorial's Palliative Care Center.
James B. & Billie Keegan Palliative Care Unit
The James B. & Billie Keegan Palliative Care Center is a unique inpatient
service that provides compassionate and comprehensive care to patients
and their families facing advanced stages of illness. Open 24 hours a
day, the center provides a softer, less institutional environment where
families and friends may visit and remain close. Staffed by specially
trained nurses and clinicians, palliative care embodies many of the principles
of hospice and in many cases alleviates, if only for the short term, the
physical effects of a life ending illness. When people are well cared
for, hope and kindness emerge.
