PIkes Peak Hospice and Palliative Care has agreed to move part of its operations to Penrose-St. Francis Health Center at 2222 N. Nevada.

Hospice plans to move its in-patient facility to the hospital system during the first quarter of 1011. The search continues for new space for the organization’s administration and other services.

The hospice was located in St. Francis Health Center, a building that Penrose has put up for sale. The tenants in the building – which also includes SET Family Medical Clinics – were asked to find a new location by year’s end.

The Pikes Peak Hospice will be located on the tenth floor of the west bed tower. The two organizations are discussing tenant improvements, paid for by the hospice organization.

The move is expected to occur during the first quarter of 2011.
