    Catholic Sponsored Hospice:

    • St. Anthony Hospice is the longest standing Catholic sponsored hospice program in Denver, with a rich heritage steeped within the Catholic Church.
    • Founded in 1987, St. Anthony Hospice encompasses the mission of Centura Health to extend the healing ministry of Christ by caring for those who are ill and by nurturing the health of the people in our communities.
    • St. Anthony Hospice through Centura Health is sponsored by the Catholic Health Initiatives.  All our facilities and programs follow the Ethical and Religious Directives as set by the Conference of Bishops.
      Outlined in the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services - Fifth Edition is "Patients should be kept as free of pain as possible so that they may die comfortably and with dignity, and in the place where they wish to die."
      • What it means to Live Each Day with Dignity: "To live in a manner worthy of our human dignity, and to spend our final days on this earth in peace and comfort, surrounded by loved ones-that is the hope of each of us."
      • St. Anthony Hospice allows those at the end-of-life stages to die with dignity and respect while making the most of the time that remains.
      • St. Anthony Hospice is dedicated to treating the whole person…body, mind and spirit.
    • Catholics being cared for by a hospice: Patients have the right and for many, the need of Catholic clergy for prayer, sacramental support, and funeral planning. The St. Anthony hospice team can either arrange for a Catholic chaplain to visit the patient or they can work with the patient to contact or reconnect with a parish - for their support.
