Sometimes people facing the end of life require care beyond what a family can offer. In such times, The Pillars offers a place to call home. The Pillars Hospice Home was the first residential hospice in the Twin Cities' East Metro area. Supported by HealthEast Foundation and a generous community, The Pillars opened in April 2000. We take our name and purpose from the pillars of faith, hope and love. At The Pillars, end of life needs are met with compassionate, respectful care.
Each of the eight private suites has its own bath and patio, opening onto the adjoining woods and pond, ideal for relaxation and experiencing the peacefulness of nature.
