It’s about you.

Open Access

At Halcyon Hospice & Palliative Care, we support an open access model of care. Open Access gives patients the medical comfort and social support traditionally available through hospice care. At the same time, patients can continue to access medical treatments that may slow their disease.

Not-for-Profit

As a not-for-profit organization, Halcyon accepts patients based on need, not on their financial situation or ability to pay.

Our Promise to You

  • We promise to encourage and support care and services that are safe, patient-centered, effective, efficient, timely and equitable.

  • We promise to uphold high standards of ethical conduct in advocating for the right of patients and their family caregivers.

  • We promise to provide caregivers with the training they need to support their loved one.

  • We promise to discuss with you how we are managing symptoms, such as trouble breathing, restlessness and agitation, and any medication side effects.

  • We promise to address your concerns and that your financial situation will never affect the care we provide.

Butterfly Release

Halcyon Hospice held a “Butterfly Release” ceremony at Charles C. Winburn Park in Northglenn. The event symbolizes new beginnings in a time of transformation, like the caterpillar turning into a butterfly.

It's Not Just a Name

The word halcyon comes from a story in Greek mythology about the halcyon, a Kingfisher bird, which had the power to calm the rough ocean waves every December so she could nest. Halcyon Hospice strives to bring the same peace and tranquility to the patients and families we serve.

From our Patients and Families

Like so many others, including myself, I thought of Hospice as a last resort.  I also felt Hospice meant certain and inevitable death. Little did I know the scope of caring. Before, during and after, your God sent staff helped in ways, not previously conceived by me. I want to take this moment to thank you. It made all the difference in the world. By the way, the sassy brunette, who visited my father in the hospital, and orchestrated the whole affair, you should be quite proud of, her diligence is not forgotten.
