MADISON, Wis. – Linda Blust, MD, has joined the medical services team of Agrace, a nonprofit, community-supported health care organization that provides hospice care, supportive (palliative) care, non-medical personal care and grief support across southern Wisconsin.
As a hospice and palliative physician, Dr. Blust is a member of the interdisciplinary team that works together to coordinate end-of-life care for Agrace’s hospice patients and their families. She oversees care plans for patients receiving care in their homes, facilities, hospitals or at Agrace’s hospice inpatient units.
Dr. Blust is board-certified in hospice and palliative medicine and internal medicine. She holds an undergraduate degree from Saint Louis University and earned her medical degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
While Dr. Blust has roots in Wisconsin, she was most recently a home-based primary care provider with Bloom Healthcare, Denver. There, she provided patient care for homebound seniors, including patients with dementia. She serves as adjunct professor at the University of Wisconsin–Parkside in Kenosha, teaching an online hematology course for students seeking degrees in health care.
“Dr. Blust has a wealth of knowledge and experience helping patients with advanced symptom management,” said Ruth Thomson, DO, chief medical officer for Agrace. “Her compassion, expertise and unique experiences will be valued as a member of the Agrace medical services team.”
