State of the Heart Hospice Names New Director of Marketing and Public Relations

Mindy Stebbins
Mindy Stebbins has joined State of the Heart Hospice as Director of Marketing and Public Relations. A lifelong resident of Darke County, Stebbins joined the local not-for-profit agency in November after several years in marketing and health care. State of the Heart Hospice serves patients and families in eastern Indiana and western Ohio who are confronting a life limiting illness.

Just recently, Stebbins was selected by the Darke County Chamber of Commerce as one of Darke County’s “Top 20 Under 40 ” Young Professionals. She along with others were recognized and honored at a luncheon held December 9 in Greenville. A feature article about Stebbins appears in the Chamber’s recent publication, “Top Young Professionals of Darke County.” In a preface in the publication, Chamber President Sharon Deschambeau writes: “this magazine is a reminder that we are all fortunate to be surrounded by earnest, hard-working people who want Darke County to be the best place it can be for all of us.”

Of her new position, Stebbins said, “I always enjoyed working in the non-profit sector during my years at Family Health and wanted to continue that line of work. I have a passion for palliative care and I am so glad to be part of such a wonderful organization.”

In her position as Director of Marketing and Public Relations, Stebbins will work to increase awareness about the agency, supervise the marketing staff in this outreach, oversee the Speakers Bureau, and assist in fund development and grant writing.

“My goal for 2012 is to educate as many people as possible on the benefits of our hospice program so families and referral sources are requesting our services sooner. There are so many benefits to our program, one of them being that we provide bereavement support for up to thirteen months after the death of a loved one. We also offer our wonderful camp BEARable for grieving children. We want to be there for the patients and their families to help with every step of their journey.”

Stebbins has an Associate’s Degree and is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in health care management. When not working, she enjoys time with her husband Jason, and her two daughters, Gabriella, 4, and Caleigh, 2. Her hobbies include, cooking, gardening, canning, reading and movies with her family.

State of the Heart, with offices in Greenville, Coldwater and Portland, is observing 30 years of service to area communities. For more information about any of the services provided by State of the Heart, visit the agency web site at
