Casa de la Luz Hospice
In 1998, Casa de la Luz Hospice was created to provide sensitivity, care and support for patients and their loved ones in the final phase of their life. Two women, who for the previous 13 years, had dedicated their professional lives to the home health industry, founded Casa de la Luz Hospice. These founders had three goals in mind when visioning their new venture: first, they wanted to deliver comfort care far beyond what most organizations were offering patients and their loved ones; second, to assemble a group of employees and volunteers who would be bound together with a common set of values and a strong work ethic; and third, to build an organization that offered financial security and professional growth to all employees and volunteers. To fulfill this vision, the founders identified core values that would serve as the essential guiding principles of the organization.
