Hospice and the Hospice Serenity House
End-of-life care focuses on the patient’s comfort and making the most of the time that remains. Hospice addresses the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones. Mahaska Health Hospice cares for patients of all ages both in the patient’s home and at the Hospice Serenity House, a six-bed residential hospice facility on the Mahaska Health Campus.
The role of Nurses continues to expand to help meet the ever changing healthcare needs of our community. The Mahaska Health Foundation has committed to support Mahaska Health Nurses who want to grow their leadership skills and further their nursing career. To date, three (3) $3,000 scholarships have been given to Mahaska Health Nurses to attend William Penn University’s RN to BSN Program, which focuses on complexities of decision-making for providing professional nursing care. Students enhance their leadership skills that are essential to nursing practice in a diverse and ever-changing healthcare environment. With more community support for the Nursing Scholarship Fund, the Foundation will be able to expand its scholarship offerings.
