St. Croix Hospice offers end-of-life care choice and advocacy to residents, families, and caregivers who live in Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, and Northeast Iowa. An award-winning organization, St. Croix Hospice has generated a reputation of quality care through a team approach where focus is on the patient, caregiver, and family. It is this patient centered mission and organic word-of-mouth prompting that has led St. Croix Hospice to serve a multi-state area.
St. Croix Hospice has a unique program that brings personalized, high quality services to increasingly underserved populations as well as those more commonly known to access end-of-life care. “We will continue to reach out to patients that are currently not being cared for and will never turn away anyone that is unable to pay for hospice services,” says Heath Bartness, CEO.
Along with all designated hospice diagnoses and in compliance with state and federal regulations, St. Croix Hospice is able to expertly manage and bring comfort care to end-stage diseases, wherever a patient considers home. The hospice team includes such disciplines as skilled nursing, music therapy, massage therapy, social work, spiritual care, volunteers, bereavement, nurse practitioner and physician services.
