St. Croix Hospice opens Marshfield branch
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – St. Croix Hospice has opened a Marshfield office in response to rising demand for hospice services in central Wisconsin. The new location, based out of 204B Upham, Marshfield, is St. Croix Hospice’s ninth Wisconsin branch and 30th branch overall.
“We strive to deliver exceptional hospice care to every patient and family, whenever they need us—including overnights, weekends and holidays,” says Mandy Cogswell, RN, chief clinical officer at St. Croix Hospice. “We’re pleased to offer experienced and dedicated hospice care teams to families in Marshfield and surrounding areas.”
According to the Wisconsin Department of Administration, the state’s elderly population—people age 65 and older—will nearly double from 2010 to 2040 as Baby Boomers age and life expectancies continue to increase. With these shifting demographics comes a growing need for hospice services statewide.
The Marshfield branch opening comes one month after St. Croix Hospice’s 10-year anniversary in October. With the addition of a branch in Marshfield, St. Croix Hospice will serve 55 Wisconsin counties. St. Croix also has facilities in Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, and Nebraska.
Hospice care provides comfort and quality of life for patients with a life-limiting diagnosis when a cure is no longer an option. St. Croix Hospice serves patients wherever they call home, including private residences, nursing homes, or assisted living facilities. The St. Croix Hospice care model supports patients physically, emotionally and spiritually, ensuring a dignified end-of-life experience in accordance with their personal values and wishes.
