Cody Regional Health Spirit Mountain Hospice
End-of-Life Care Focused on Comfort & Peace of Mind
Cody Regional Health Spirit Mountain Hospice is proud to have served the
Big Horn Basin since 1994, providing in-home care and inpatient comfort
care to patients and families facing end-of-life issues. When curative
measures are no longer an option, the hospice provides physical, emotional,
and spiritual support. We take great effort to meet this responsibility
by offering comprehensive care services to ease this time for patients
and their loved ones, in th comfort of their own homes, or at our inpatient
HOspice facility. Spirit Mountain Hospice is the only inpatient facility
in the Big Horn Basin Region.

Our newest hospice opened in 2011. This new facility was designed to create
a comfortable, home-like atmosphere for our patients. The facility has
eight private rooms plus a large family room and kitchen. We employ a
diversely knowledgeable staff in order to make sure all of our patients
medical and social needs are taken care of.
Hospice provides care through an interdisciplinary approach to support
patients and their families. House staff includes:
- Registered nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses
- Medical social workers
- Occupational, physical and speech therapists
Our team goes above and beyond to deliver the attentive, personalized care
patients deserve. Comfort is an essential part of hospice care, and our
facility was designed to make patients feel more at home, rather than
at a hospital.
Spiritual care is a component of the hospice philosophy of providing holistic
patient care. We provide 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.
