(PUEBLO, Colo.) - Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care, along with other national, state and community organizations, is leading a massive effort to highlight the importance of advance healthcare decision-making—an effort that has culminated in the formal designation of April 16 as National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD). As a participating organization, Sangre de Cristo is providing information and tools for the public to talk about their wishes with family, friends and healthcare providers, and execute written advance directives in accordance with Colorado state laws.

Specifically, on April 16, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Parkview Medical Center is welcoming the public throughout the day at 400 W. 16th Street in Pueblo, with free information about advance care planning and advance directives provided by Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care.

“As a result of National Healthcare Decisions Day, many more people in our community can be expected to have thoughtful conversations about their healthcare decisions and complete reliable advance directives to make their wishes known,” said Tarrah Lowry, President & CEO of Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care. “Fewer families and healthcare providers will have to struggle with making difficult healthcare decisions in the absence of guidance from the patient, while healthcare providers and facilities will be better equipped to address advance healthcare planning issues before a crisis and be better able to honor patient wishes when the time comes to do so.”
