Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care Chaplain in Kansas City, Missouri

The Hospice Chaplain stewards the art of compassion by supporting patients and families through the end of life journey through spiritual connection.

Death is a meaningful experience.Living the best life in our final moments requires caregivers who want to address fear and change the conversation to what is sacred.

Stewarding the end of life journey well requires an unwavering clinical skill set balanced by the art of compassion.

We believe compassion should not be a transaction. So we ask ourselves every day how do we do more . . . as caregivers, as a team, and as an organization.We believe no one should die alone. So we put patients before profit to ensure a member of our team can be at the bedside.

Crossroads exists because the model of healthcare today is full of ultimatums rather than choices. Look, we understand this business is difficult, it's part of what drives us to stand up and find new ways to satisfy the heart of what drives our teams to do more.
