ABOUT US:

We know hospice social workers are special. Their commitment to assist patients and families in the most vulnerable moments in life is remarkable. As the founder of Roze Room I am honored to celebrate our 20th year in the industry and to be surrounded by dedicated and caring professionals.

Roze Room Hospice was formed to honor the memory of my grandmother Roza, whose favorite flower was the rose. Integrating her name and the flower rose into our name reminds me of our daily purpose and mission. Therefore, all we do at Roze Room is geared towards the patient and family. Our goal is to provide the best care possible to our patients and treat each patient with love, compassion and dignity. Our nurses are an integral part of our organization and we look forward to you joining our family.
