Brighton Home Health and Hospice BBB Business Review

top work places hospiceBrighton Hospice Minnesota opened its doors in 2014. This Minnesota Hospice became the second division Brighton Hospice opened after beginning with our Utah Hospice headquarters in the Salt Lake City area in 2012. Brighton was founded by our two owners, one of which had extensive experience in geriatric care while working in Assisted Living as a director of nursing, spent time as an RN in a transitional rehab hospital and also had experience in hospice care. Having this knowledge and experience allowed ownership to learn what to do or not to do when it came to hospice care. It was their mission and goal to provide twice the amount of hospice care to our patients in order to provide the hospice service and care they deserve. This plan of care was all established with the hospice patient and family in mind. Hospice care and communication became our number one priority.

Brighton Hospice Minnesota has rapidly become one of the elite Hospice Companies in the Minneapolis area with headquarters based in St. Louis Park, MN. At Brighton Hospice Minnesota, we take pride in providing the best comfort care to patients and their families. Whether it’s Hospice care, or Palliative care, we can provide our patients with the best experience in the Twin Cities area. Our staff consists of experienced hospice nurses who put the needs of the patient first.

It is about giving an opportunity to have peace and comfort to the hospice patient and family.
