TRU Community Care (TRU) marked the recent move of their Inpatient Care Center with a dedication event on May 30. Founded as Boulder Hospice in 1976, TRU has operated the only hospice inpatient unit of its kind in the area since 1999. Due to the purchase and redevelopment of the Boulder Community Health Broadway Campus by the City of Boulder, TRU moved its Care Center from the BCH Campus to Longmont United Hospital (LUH).
Now located on 4th floor south at LUH, the TRU’s Care Center has seven private patient rooms. Staff provides around-the-clock nursing care, state-of the-art pain management, and much needed emotional and spiritual support. The Care Center offers compassionate care for complex medical issues on a short-term basis. Family members are able to visit their loved one 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The May 30 event served to welcome community members and was attended by new LUH CEO, Dr. Christina Johnson, TRU Board Co-Chairs Marty Coffin Evans and Jim Williams, and many long-time TRU supporters. Chaplains from LUH and TRU said blessings after TRU CEO Michael McHale gave opening remarks and TRU COO Pat Mehnert shared stories of special Care Center moments from the past few decades.
