About Casa de la Luz Hospice
Casa de la Luz Hospice was established in 1998 to provide sensitivity, care, and support for patients and their loved ones during the end of life. Lynette Jaramillo, and Agnes C. Poore, local Tucson women, created Casa de la Luz Hospice with three goals in mind. First, they wanted to deliver comfort care far beyond what most organizations were offering patients and their loved ones; second, to assemble a group of employees and volunteers who would be bound together with a common set of values and a strong work ethic; and third, to build an organization that offered financial security and professional growth to all employees and volunteers. To fulfill this vision, the founders identified core values that would serve as the essential guiding principles of the organization. The owners are personally involved in the day-to-day operations of the company and intend to carry this legacy of superior care into the future.
Casa de la Luz Hospice is a member of the following organizations: National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization; Arizona Hospice and Palliative Care Organization; Eldercare Council of Arizona; Tucson Metro Chamber; Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce; Health and Wellness Organization; Alzheimer’s Association; and the American Heart Association.
Casa de la Luz is the winner of the 2003 Copper Cactus Best Place to Work award and the 2012 Pinnacle Award for Mid-size Business from the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce. Casa de la Luz was also proud to be recognized as a nominee for the 2016 Business Growth, mid-size business category, for the Tucson Metro Chamber Copper Cactus awards. Lynette and Agnes, the founders of Casa de la Luz, were honored with the 2016 Legacy Award from the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce.
