The Frederic H. Kass III, M.D. Endowed Scholarship Fund


Dr. Kass was one of the founders of Hospice of Washington County, Inc. Since 1980 Dr. Kass has served as HWC’s only Medical Director. To honor Dr. Kass for his tireless efforts, the Hospice of Washington County Board of Directors established the Frederic H. Kass III Scholarship fund in 2005 in celebration of HWC’s 25th anniversary. The fund was designed to support higher education for end-of-life care professionals of Hospice of Washington County, Inc.

In 2010, during the 30th Anniversary Celebration of HWC, the fund was expanded and endowed. The Frederic H. Kass III, M.D. Endowed Scholarship Fund was created. Dozens of individuals generously donated to the fund to honor Dr. Kass for his efforts over the past 30 years. The fund was expanded to include all students in Washington County pursuing a career in the healthcare field.
