Opening of North Office Allows The Denver Hospice to Better Serve All Our Patients
The staff teams who serve our patients and families living in the northeast and northwest portions of our widening footprint around the metro Denver area are operating out of a new hub. The Denver Hospice celebrated the opening of our new office in Westminster on Tuesday, Sept. 29 with a socially distanced ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The North Office is located along Highway 36, just off Sheridan Boulevard. It will mainly be used as office space for employees, with additional meeting space. When it is safe to come together again, we will host grief support services at this location closer to home for the loved ones and families of our patients.
2020 has been a year of remarkable expansion for The Denver Hospice: In August we also opened the new Amy Davis Hospice Support Center on our Lowry Campus. Through these additions we are positioning ourselves for the future – ensuring we have the space and resources available to meet the growing need for high-quality, mission-driven hospice and palliative care in our community. The new offices not only enable us to expand our programs and services for families and community, but also allow us to better serve our patients through better use of their caregivers’ time.
“Staff traveling into Denver to meet, gather necessary supplies and then turning around to go back into their service territory wasn’t helping us deliver better patient care. The Westminster office has been a long time coming to help our teams be more efficient,” said Melinda Egging, President of The Denver Hospice.
The Denver Hospice has been serving the Denver area and beyond for more than 40 years. Across nine counties – Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Elbert, Jefferson and Weld – we care for over five thousand hospice and palliative patients each year.
Thanks again to all those who have contributed to the effort to make the opening of our new North Office a reality. We are grateful for your help and for this new opportunity to be based closer to many of the patients in our care.
