Mission Statement

The mission of Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care is to enhance the quality of life and to maintain the integrity of individuals and their families in need of supportive or end-of-life services by offering them symptom management, support, comfort, and compassion.

Organization History

Sangre de Cristo Hospice grew out of an earlier hospice program that began in 1980 at Parkview Episcopal Hospital. In 1985, the program became a community-based hospice with five employees and took the name Sangre de Cristo Hospice. In 2001 Sangre de Cristo Hospice expanded its services to include palliative care and took the name Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care (SdCHPC). Today, the organization employs 192 individuals, has 293 volunteers, and provides specialized end-of-life and palliative care to Pueblo, Fremont, Bent, Chaffee, Crowley, Custer, Huerfano, Las Animas, Lincoln, Otero, and Park county residents. Operating offices in Pueblo, Canon City, Fowler, Walsenburg, and Trinidad, Colorado, SdCHPC has the only hospice in-patient facility, the Joni Fair Hospice House, between Colorado Springs, Colorado and Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Testimonials

"The only place my mother ever felt comfortable was in her home. I am eternally grateful to Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care for making it possible for my mother to stay in her home, where she wanted to be, until she passed away. The staff was absolutely incredible, providing love, compassion, support, dignity and comfort to my mother and all of our family. There is no way that we could have gone through one of the hardest times in our lives without Sangre de Cristo Hospice!" Robin.

"We prayed that my husband would have a room at Hospice House when it was full. The care the Hospice staff provided made a big difference. My husband found comfort and I knew I wasn't alone. He died with dignity and I have cherished memories thanks to the caring staff. People need to know about Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care and Hospice House. It's about living when the shift is made from cure to care." Jane, wife of Hospice House patient.
