COVID-19 Resources and Updates

Hospice of the Northwest is committed to providing compassionate and dignified care for every patient and family we serve. Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has touched all of our lives, and it is changing the way we can provide hospice services to you. We are following the most up to date guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Washington State Department of Health (DOH), the University of Washington, and Skagit Regional Health. We want to assure you that we are committed to delivering the expert care you expect. Keeping our patients, their loved ones, and our staff safe is our highest priority.

How can you help?

Monetary Donations

Despite the disruption of COVID 19,  providing compassionate and dignified care to dying people must continue. The patients and families that Hospice of the Northwest serves are still in need of expert end-of-life care, medication, equipment, grief and loss counseling, integrative therapies, and support for those who are un/underinsured. New considerations for keeping patients and staff safe have increased costs. Your gift in support of the “General Fund” allows the most flexibility to use resources where and when they are needed, including the impact of COVID-19 on the delivery of care. Every gift, like every moment of life, matters. Please click here to make a gift, or call the HNW Foundation at 360-814-5702.
