RN Case Manager

Guardian Angel Hospice - Carmel, IN (30+ days ago)


In 2001, a group of hospice professionals calling themselves “The Founding Angels”, came together to start a new organization based on the belief that they could offer hospice care on a higher plane than any other resource in Central Indiana. The group has evolved since that time, but one constant that has remained is their determination to run the organization by their stated values of professionalism, teamwork, stewardship, integrity, and service. These values are the guiding force of our operations and have been placed at the top of our organizational chart to emphasize their importance.

Guardian Angel Hospice has grown steadily in the number of patients it serves, as well as in the size of its staff and volunteer base to provide those services. Guardian Angel Hospice remains locally owned and operated, with offices in Kokomo, Logansport, Lafayette, and Carmel, Indiana. Our focus is to provide outstanding end-of-life care to all people living in the 30 Central Indiana counties we serve.
