TELLURIDE – Dr. Suzanne M. Hazen’s new Optometry Office, Telluride Vision, providing comprehensive eye care to individuals of all ages, on the second floor of the New San Juan Building at 220 E. Colorado Ave. Suite 210. 

Hazen, a graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder who received her Doctorate from the Southern California College of Optometry, has over ten years of experience, most of it working on staff at a multi-specialty, private practice located in Encinitas, Calif. Hazen has lived in the Telluride valley for over two years with her husband and their son who is currently in first grade. Hazen has thoroughly enjoyed getting to know many of the individuals who make this town so special, and looks forward to developing long lasting relationships within the community.  When not seeing patients, Dr. Hazen enjoys spending time outdoors, volunteering at school events and in the classrooms, and helping to coach some of the Parks and Recreation Department’s youth programs. 

Telluride Vision is currently welcoming new patients into the practice, and most Medical and Vision insurance plans are accepted. For more information about the practice or to make an appointment, call 970/708-4890 or visit


With Name Change, Alpine Hospice Now Harden Hospice Colorado


Harden Healthcare, a Texas-based senior healthcare services provider with operations in 13 states, announced today that its Western Slope subsidiary, Alpine Hospice, will change its name to Harden Hospice Colorado effective immediately. The name change is part of a company-wide rebranding effort that will result in more consistency among Harden hospice companies. No other operational changes are anticipated as a result of the name change. 

Harden Healthcare provides a continuum of healthcare services for seniors – including hospice care, home health, skilled nursing, rehabilitation and assisted living – through its various companies. The Harden family of companies employs 33,000 associates who serve more than 35,000 patients a day.

“Providing compassionate care will remain the hallmark of all Harden Healthcare companies, including Harden Hospice Colorado,” Lew Little, Harden Healthcare chief executive officer, said. “As a company, we’ve grown significantly in recent years and feel the time is right to unify most of our companies under the Harden name and branding. We also believe this will help our patients recognize Harden companies, which will always provide the highest-quality care, as their healthcare needs change and they navigate the continuum of care.”

The top priority of Alpine Hospice – now Harden Hospice Colorado – will continue to be, the comfort and well-being of its patients. It will continue to provide hospice services for end-of-life care, focused on enhancing the quality of life for patients and their families.
