About Us

Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care has been the community leader in end-of-life care for the past 40 years, founding the hospice movement in the Pikes Peak region in 1980. We are the only nonprofit, community-based hospice in El Paso and Teller Counties.

Every year, we help  2,000 patients and families navigate the challenges of a life-limiting illness with comfort, dignity and fulfillment.  In a business like this, you don’t thrive for this long, nor serve as many patients as we have, without holding to a particular standard.

Ours is simple: We believe that hospice care is about living, and that every patient and family deserves consistent expert care and compassionate personal attention. Here are just a few things that set Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care apart:

  • Comprehensive team of hospice and palliative experts including our physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and certified nursing assistants, counselors, chaplains, and administrative professionals
  • More than 200 trained volunteers supporting professional care teams
  • Fast response and 24/7 access to care
  • The only dedicated hospice inpatient care unit serving El Paso and Teller Counties
  • A comprehensive grief counseling program, including specialized care for children and teens

What Our Families Say

The entire hospice team exceeded our expectations always going above and beyond.  They are the most amazing group of people.  I can't even put into words how much we appreciate them.  They were always very caring, patient and sincere.  We could not have managed the process without them.  We will never forget you and are forever grateful. Thank you. ~ Patient's daughter

Everyone who came to attend to my wife were all fantastic caregivers and I cannot praise your hospice staff enough.  I was so thankful you were there. ~ Patient's husband

I could not have asked for a more caring set of people to help us through this difficult time.  Thank you so very much. ~ Patient's family
