Impacting Lives

Hospi Corporation is a medical device company operating in a changing healthcare environment. We work to stay connected to our roots in the nursing community. We consider the patients and caregivers who are the end benefactors of our products.

To that end, we are proud to share some perspectives that motivate our company and keep us focused on the ultimate end goal: improving quality of life.

“As the wave of baby boomers crests over the next few decades, our healthcare system will be critically challenged, and hospice and palliative care will grow at an unprecedented rate. Excellent medical devices not only improve quality of life for patients themselves, but also help caregivers and the community at large by easing the burden and cost of care. I strive to develop products that promote self care or improve the ability of caregivers to provide care per Orem’s Nursing theory of Self Care.”

“I have been a hospice nurse for 14 years. Every patient and family has their own story and a unique journey. One of the most rewarding aspects of being a hospice nurse is to partner with patients and their families in identifying the patient’s comfort goals, and to assist the patient to achieve those goals with the focus on maximizing quality of life.”

Hospice Nurse
“I founded Hospice of the Valley after my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1973 and ultimately lost his battle with the disease. During his illness, I noticed other patients didn’t have the same support system that we had, and I was compelled to find an organization that could help those struggling with terminal illness. Today, I am thrilled to see how the dedicated and compassionate hospice caregivers have been truly effective by easing suffering and allowing patients to live with love and dignity during the last months, weeks and days of their lives.”

“Hospice is such an important stop on a person’s journey to death. When patients are referred early enough, the specially-trained hospice and palliative care professionals can positively impact the patient’s journey. I am so honored to be part of this hospice team for 22 years.”
