About Redmond-Sisters Hospice

Redmond-Sisters Hospice is an independent, Medicare certified, non-profit organization. We have been serving the Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook County areas for 26 years. Because of our long-standing commitment to our community, many of our patients come to us through personal references as well as from referrals of local physicians. Our clinical staff receives the highest quality training as does our volunteer group.

Now in our 26th year of service, we remain the first choice for quality end-of-life care in the area.

Our Mission : At Redmond-Sisters Hospice our mission is to enhance the quality of life for patients and families by providing the highest level of compassionate hospice care and bereavement services for our Central Oregon community.

Our Roots: The legacy of compassionate care at Redmond-Sisters Hospice began in 1981 as an all-volunteer agency, serving just six patients per month. We now serve patients throughout Central Oregon.

Our Values: We care for patients and families with dignity and respect; in fact, patients and families are our primary focus. Our mission is to serve in a gentle, compassionate way with a caring presence. Under Hospice care, the terminally ill patient and family can remain together in the comfort and dignity of their own home and avoid the high cost of hospitals and traditional institutional care. Our care is of the highest quality and reflects a commitment to state-of-the-art care.

Comprised of staff and volunteers, our interdisciplinary care team is our most valued asset. We create a supportive and nurturing environment that fosters integrity, accountability and empathy for our patients. For more than 27 years, Redmond-Sisters Hospice has been earning the trust of our community and inspiring courage in our patients and their families.
