[BAXTER, MINN.] Dec. 9, 2021 – St. Croix Hospice has opened a new branch in Baxter, Minn. The Baxter branch of the Minnesota-founded agency cares for hospice patients and their families in the north central part of the state. The agency has been serving patients in the area since 2011, out of existing offices in both Brainerd and Sartell.

“St. Croix Hospice’s entrance into Baxter was the result of positive relationships with local provider partners and knowledge of unmet needs,” says Heath Bartness, St. Croix Hospice Chief Executive Officer. “Together we are committed to providing excellent hospice care, delivered with compassion and dignity. The Baxter team is already rooted in the community and partnering with local physicians and facilities to provide consultations, admissions and care.”

Hospice care provides quality of life for patients with a terminal diagnosis when a cure is no longer an option, focusing on comfort and dignity. St. Croix Hospice surrounds patients, families and caregivers with a team of compassionate experts who support their physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs.

St. Croix Hospice specializes exclusively in hospice with a care model tailored to the unique needs of hospice patients and their families.
