The leadership team of Shangrila Hospice team provides our organization with the management of day-to-day operations and acts as visionaries for future growth, shaping the culture, standards and excellence of our organization.
Shangrila Hospice was founded in 2013, with the idea of creating a Christian run hospice agency. The plan was to share financial resources and work experience to develop the business. Tim has extensive experience in management and accounting. He rented an office space in Upland, California and later moved the business to Rancho Cucamonga. This was due to the fact that by the summer of 2015 the business had outgrown their office space, and needed to move into a much larger facility. Today that office space is fully utilized as the company has maintained steady growth. Shangrila Hospice is now working on long range plans, strategies and personnel development to ensure continued success and provide the highest level of professional care to all their clients and their families.
