Mercy Hospice House Opens

Mercy Hospice House community room(DURANGO, COLO.) Mercy Hospice House, a new residential hospice facility on the Mercy Regional Medical Center campus, opens for patient care on Tuesday, October 3, 2017.

At Mercy Hospice House, hospice-trained professionals will provide 24-hour care, and other staff will be available to care for the emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their families.

Residential hospice care is often chosen when patients have symptoms that may be difficult to manage at home, or when patient families need respite from the demands caring for a loved one at home or in another setting.

The eight-bed, 11,000-square-foot facility’s home-like features include a shared family kitchen where families can prepare meals; a living room and other family gathering areas; a library; private patios attached to each patient room; gardens; and a beautiful art collection.

Mercy Hospice House is the only residential hospice facility available to serve communities in the Four Corners region.

Mercy Regional Medical Center and Mercy Hospice House are located at:

1010 Three Springs Blvd.
Durango, CO 81301
