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

What you all do is amazing.  Thank you for all your help, support and guidance for my mother and family.  It was such a gift and a blessing to be with my mom and take care of her and to have her at home with my daughter and I.  We will never forget your kindness.  Thank you! ~ Patient's family

The services my husband and I received during his last stages of life were invaluable to us.  His primary wish at the end was to be at home.  I was very afraid that I couldn't grant that wish, but with the help of Pikes Peak Hospice he was able to be at home, where he was comfortable, until the very end.  I am also truly thankful for the grief counseling that you provided to me. ~ Patient's wife

Thank you for all your assistance during this time and for the care of my mother.  There are not enough compliments to give for the support, knowledge, bedside manner, courtesy and kindness. ~ Patient's daughter
