The Denver Hospice

For over three decades, more than 60,000 patients and their family members have turned to us for care and comfort during difficult times.
As Colorado’s leader in hospice and palliative care we are committed to caring for everyone who comes through our door wherever they call home.
The Denver Hospice cares for the elderly at the end of their long, rich lives, those struck far too young by advanced illness, offers comfort to those who choose to battle their life-limiting illness, offers comfort and grief counseling to families and friends.

Our Board of Directors

Members of The Denver Hospice Board of Directors generously donate their time overseeing the operations of The Denver Hospice and Optio Health Services. Working with CEO Tim Bowen, President Janelle McCallum, and executive management, the board annually sets strategic goals, reviews and approves the annual business and gets involved in fundraising activities.   The board meets seven times annually while various committees meet monthly or as needed.
