The Denver Hospice Opens New Support and Grief Center on Lowry Campus
Denver, Colo. – The ribbon-cutting celebration was brief and the gathering small (to allow social distancing) but the impact will be huge: The Denver Hospice on Aug. 13 cut the ribbon on its new 24,000-square-feet Amy Davis Hospice Support Center.
Named in honor of the late philanthropist Amy Davis, the center opened its doors on The Denver Hospice’s Lowry Campus at 8289 East Lowry Blvd. in Denver.
The brief event marking the opening highlighted how this serves as a symbol of The Denver Hospice’s long-term commitment to serve the region with high-quality and compassionate care.
The new building is adjacent to The Denver Hospice Inpatient Care Center, which has a homelike setting and 24 private suites with patios.
The addition of the Amy Davis Hospice Support Center will prepare the community’s largest not-for-profit hospice provider for the future by increasing capacity so programs and services can be expanded.
“The center allows us to expand the Footprints children’s care program, enhance adult and child bereavement services, increase space available for medical education, provide a complimentary meeting space for other not-for-profit organizations, and greatly reduce administrative operational costs — allowing more resources to go to patient care,” said Melinda Egging, president of The Denver Hospice.
The building also will be the home of Care Synergy, a network of not-for-profit Colorado hospice, palliative and home health providers including The Denver Hospice.
An intimate celebration marked the opening on Aug. 13, 2020 of the Amy Davis Hospice Support Center, built on The Denver Hospice’s Lowry Campus. The Denver Hospice President Melinda Egging spoke to attendees outside the new building and toured the interior with Tim Bowen, president and CEO of the Care Synergy network, and guests. The Denver Hospice is an affiliate of the Care Synergy network and both not-for-profit organizations will use the new space.
