The Denver Hospice Granted Jewish Hospice Accreditation

(Denver, Colo.) – The Denver Hospice announced that it has received accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) and the National Institute for Jewish Hospice (NIJH).

“Accreditation is one of the many ways that we demonstrate our commitment to the highest standards of quality and care for our patients.”

— Melinda Egging, president of The Denver Hospice

NIJH says its “accreditation testifies to the hospice’s desire and their ability to serve their Jewish clients in a culturally sensitive way.”

ACHC accreditation is regarded as one of the key benchmarks for measuring the quality of an organization and reflects an agency’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that demonstrate a higher level of performance and patient care. The Denver Hospice has received ACHC accreditation for Hospice Care, Hospice In-patient Care and has received Distinction in Palliative Care.

The Denver Hospice was co-founded by a Jewish oncology nurse, Carolyn Jaffe, in 1978. It has been accredited by the NIJH since 2007 and is the only provider in Colorado to merit this accreditation.

As a not-for-profit, mission-based hospice, The Denver Hospice works with patients in the manner most respectful of their religious and personal beliefs.

The Denver Hospice is the region’s leading, largest and most trusted not-for-profit provider of life-enhancing hospice and palliative care. That means we offer more expertise, more resources and a more complete continuum of compassionate care to patients facing life-limiting illnesses and end-of-life transition.

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
