The New Home of Casa de la Luz Hospice

Preparations for our new front reception area
Today is a big day for Casa de la Luz Hospice. If you’re our fan on Facebook, then you’ve probably seen the photos we’ve been posting since May of our under construction new campus. We outgrew our administrative  offices—a couple times over—and today marks the day we begin official administrative operations from 7740 N. Oracle Road, Tucson.

Construction will continue for the next six months or so on our two other buildings—the Casa de la Luz Foundation and the Casa de la Luz Conference Center. We look forward to celebrating the completion of the campus in early summer of 2012. 

The new administrative office features contemporary
modular units to promote interaction and
collaboration among hospice team members.
This new campus allows Casa the chance to continue to grow as Tucson’s leading hospice. We’re excited by what this move represents—our growth as a hospice and an opportunity to help more people through the end of life journey. By offering employees a better workspace, one that fosters greater interactions and more spontaneous collaboration, we can all continue to provide superior care to our patients and their loved ones.

Thirteen years ago, Casa de la Luz Hospice was founded by two Tucson women, Lynette Jaramillo and Agnes Poore, RN. They envisioned an organization that would provide superior hospice services to Tucson and its surrounding communities, an organization that would focus on quality of life and provide comfort, support, and experienced hospice care during the end of life journey. We are honored to serve patients and their loved ones during this precious phase of life.
