Hospice Invites Its Rim Neighbors To Open House


Hospice Compassus is inviting residents of Payson and the Rim Country to visit its facility on Mud Springs Road as part of National Hospice Month.

The open house will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 9 at Hospice House, 511 S. Mud Springs Road, Payson.

The event is to thank the community for its support over the 20 years Hospice has been active in the Rim Country. There will be tours of the facility, refreshments and door prizes.

This is an opportunity to learn more about the special services Hospice Compassus provides those who are facing the end of life and their families.

Hospice Compassus has a highly trained staff and corps of volunteers who have made a commitment to helping those at the end of their lives live in the way they want to.

There is a medical director and two associate medical directors overseeing the care required with life-limiting illnesses: Dr. Paul Gilbert, who has been medical director since March 2010 and associate directors Dr. David Cluff and Dr. James Schouten, who have been with Hospice since October.

“They’re wonderful,” said Mary Jane Rogers, executive director of Hospice Compassus.

“They’re incredible,” added Kathleen Hughes, who does outreach services for the facility.

“They hit the ground running and impressed the staff beyond their wildest imaginations,” Rogers said.

“They’re well thought of in both the medical and general community,” Hughes added.

To make sure there is enough food, Hospice is requesting guests RSVP to (928) 472-6340.
