Hospice & Palliative Care receives grant

Hospice & Palliative Care of  Western Colorado has received a two-year grant from the Colorado Health Foundation for $188,000 to help the organization continue to provide care for people facing serious illnesses.

“This is such an important award because our palliative care program truly depends on generous funding through philanthropy and grants,” said Christy Whitney, founder and chief executive officer of Hospice & Palliative Care. “This funding allows us to continue to touch the lives of patients and families throughout our community and make that lasting impression at a time when it is needed most.”

The palliative care program assists patients and their families by relieving pain and other physical symptoms, coordinating care with health care providers and helping them make informed choices about their care and treatment. Last year the program served 288 patients.

The Colorado Health Foundation funds grants and initiatives that encourage healthy lifestyles and improve access to quality health care.

Based in Grand Junction, Hospice & Palliative Care of Western Colorado offers a range of services to people facing serious illness, end of life and grief. For more information, visit www.hospicewco.com
