Forty Years of Caring With Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions
It started as the dream of passionate volunteers, searching for a better way to care for their loved ones, friends, and neighbors. In 1981, the Central Wyoming Cancer Treatment and Hospice Program was dedicated in small building on South Jackson Street. Four decades later our location has changed, our campus expanded, our programs multiplied, and we have a different name. But one thing has not changed, our dedication to you and to carry out our mission “To companion the end-of-life journey with skill and compassion.” In those years, we’ve added our Chapman and Kloefkorn Hospice Homes; hired staff with Hospice hearts and special skills to care for our patients and families; added our Transitions Program to help the elderly and those with life-limiting conditions; and expanded our Grief Care offerings to the entire community. We continue to search for all the ways to say “yes” to anyone who needs us. We owe much to those founders, the doctors and nurses, the compassionate staff, the many board members and volunteers who embraced the hospice philosophy and worked tirelessly to make this special care a reality for your parents and grandparents, for all your loved ones, for our veterans and for our homeless; for anyone who needs us. I am so proud to be a part of this Hospice family, to help carry on the legacy of those passionate dreamers who brought Central Wyoming Hospice from vision to reality. And I am humbled by all of you who constantly show your love and support to us in so many ways. You have always been part of this dream, and with your help, we will continue to carry this mission far into the future.
