Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care Joins Care Synergy

 

DENVER (April 12, 2016) – Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care will be affiliating with Care Synergy, a not-for-profit organization created to support, sustain and grow preeminent not-for-profit, community-based, legacy hospice providers along Colorado’s Front Range, the boards of directors of both organizations announced today. Other affiliates include The Denver Hospice, Halcyon Hospice and Pathways Hospice.

As a Care Synergy affiliate, Pikes Peak Hospice will continue to provide compassionate end-of-life and palliative care in El Paso County while benefitting from Care Synergy’s shared resources and broader market presence to ensure its long-term sustainability and strategic positioning in the changing health care environment.

“This partnership with Care Synergy allows us to remain independent and locally governed. At the same time it will help us work more efficiently and put even more emphasis on the comprehensive end-of-life and palliative care we provide to those in need in our community,” said Martha Barton, President of Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care.

Under the Care Synergy operating model, each of the four affiliates will continue to operate as distinct and independent not-for-profit hospice and palliative care providers serving their respective communities.

“On behalf of advocates for community-based hospice all across the Front Range, I’m proud to welcome Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care to the Care Synergy Family,” says Tim Bowen, President and CEO of Care Synergy. “In affiliating with The Denver Hospice, Halcyon Hospice and Pathways Hospice, Pikes Peak Hospice will maintain its local identity while joining in a not-for-profit, values-based, mission driven organization committed to providing care, comfort and compassion to the individuals, families and communities we each are honored and privileged to serve.”

Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care introduced the hospice movement to the Pikes Peak region in 1980. Since that time, Pikes Peak Hospice teams have continued to offer compassionate, expert care and practical support to ensure comfort for all who face serious illness.

The Denver Hospice has been the leader in hospice and palliative care in the nine-county metro Denver area since 1978. The Denver Hospice offers a range of services to Coloradoans in keeping with its mission to encircle those facing advanced illness with unprecedented levels of comfort, compassion and expertise.

Halcyon Hospice & Palliative Care provides patient-centered care along the Front Range. Halcyon Hospice is committed to a standard of excellence in providing sensitive, patient-centered care to patients facing serious or life-limiting illnesses and their families.

Pathways Hospice, located in Fort Collins since 1978, provides care for those navigating the last months of life and support programs for their families. Pathways Hospice serves individuals living in Larimer and Weld Counties, including Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley and Windsor.
