KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, May 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — John A. Burroughs, MD, is a new Medical Director at Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care in Kansas City. Dr. Burroughs partners with other clinicians and Crossroads Medical Directors for the delivery of hospice and palliative care with a clinical team of more than 55 end-of-life care professionals.
A family doctor, Dr. Burroughs chose to transition from a successful practice he built over more than 20 years in Liberty, Missouri for the full-time Medical Director position. But he’s not new to Crossroads.
Dr. Burroughs has been a respected part-time Associate Medical Director with Crossroads since 2009. He was also Medical Director of a long-term care facility where Crossroads has provided end-of-life care to residents for many years.
A graduate of Duke University and Wake Forest School of Medicine, Dr. Burroughs is looking forward to specializing in end-of-life care. “Offering dignity and control to patients and their families is what I get to help with,” Dr. Burroughs said of his new role.
“We are fortunate to have Dr. Burroughs join Crossroads, especially as full-time dedicated Medical Directors are a rarity at most hospices,” said Dr. Timothy Ihrig, Crossroads’ Chief Medical Officer. “His family medicine experience, his compassion and his high level of clinical acumen will benefit our hospice and palliative patients and their families immensely.”
