Spirit Mountain Hospice House
Spirit Mountain Hospice House is the only facility of its kind in the Big Horn Basin area. Opened in 2011, the facility has eight private rooms plus a large family room and kitchen. All of the above-mentioned staff complement the care at the Hospice House facility.
Spiritual care is a component of the hospice philosophy of providing care for the entire individual.
Hospice provides professional and volunteer clergy who have training in the area of death and dying and who are sensitive to the many forms of religious expression.
Hospice spiritual counselors are available to hospice patients and their families, but spiritual care is not a required component of the hospice program; hospice patients and their family members can opt out of the spiritual care offerings.
Rev. Dr. Randy Leisey and Deacon Joe Bush make regular visits to hospice patients, and they can also put clergy from the community in touch with Spirit Mountain Hospice patients if specific clergy persons are requested.
