We are experts in hospice care simply because we have been doing it longer.
As the second oldest free-standing hospice in the United States, the Hospice of Saint John has built a reputation of unparalleled excellence in skilled, compassionate care, providing service regardless of age, disability, gender, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation or the ability to pay for care.
Our Hospice accepts the highest percentage of uninsured and under insured patients in Colorado.
The Hospice of Saint John founder Father Paul von Lobkowitz, O.S.J., brought the hospice concept to Colorado from England with the idea that care should be made available to everyone.
Father Paul von Lobkowitz, O.S.J., Founder (1930-2004)
Since 1977, the Hospice of Saint John has been setting hospice care standards for others to follow. As a priest, a nurse and an educator Father Paul felt that the dying needed to be treated with compassion and dignity. The Hospice has cared for over 30,000 patients and their loved ones, under the philosophy of its founder, Father Paul. The Hospice of Saint John proudly offers an innovative, award-winning program. Years of experience have translated to knowledge, continuity and quality. We are fully accredited by The Joint Commission, the gold standard in health care.
The Hospice of Saint John is a program that enables terminally ill patients to make the most of every moment. Our staff is expert in palliative care (pain management), acute care and respite care. We provide expert guidance through end-of-life concerns in patient's homes, in nursing homes, in assisted living facilities and in our in-patient care facility. Father Paul's philosophy of care and respect for patients and their loved ones lives on in his memory.
The mission of the Hospice of Saint John is to provide alternative, supportive and loving care for the terminally ill and their families, with an emphasis on life and living.
We promise to do our best to meet the needs of every patient on an individual basis. When patients are counting the moments, we make those moments count.
Our vision is to maintain our leadership in hospice care and excellence in our services provided for patients and their loved ones. The demand for hospice care is expected to increase in the near future. Thus, we are planning to expand our service abilities, scope of service, service venues and our reach into the community. In addition we plan to remain on the forefront of educating hospice professionals as well as participating in leading edge end-of-life research.
