Hospice Of Redmond Charity Profile
Mission: To enhance the quality of life for patients and families by providing the highest level of compassionate hospice care and bereavement services for our Central Oregon community. The legacy of compassionate care at Hospice of Redmond began in 1981 as an all-volunteer agency, serving just six patients per month. We now serve patients throughout Central Oregon.
We care for patients and families with dignity and respect; in fact, patients and families are our primary focus. Our mission is to serve you in a gentle, compassionate way with a caring presence. Under Hospice care, the terminally ill patient and family can remain together in the comfort and dignity of their own home and avoid the high cost of hospitals and traditional institutional care. Our care is of the highest quality and reflects a commitment to state of the art care. Composed of staff and volunteers, Hospice of Redmond-Sisters interdisciplinary care team is our most valued asset. We create a supportive, nurturing, environment that fosters integrity, accountability and empathy for our patients.
