Bobbie Cotten, RN
With over 17 years experience as a Registered Nurse, I have been working in Hospice for approximately 10 years.  My hospice career was started in 2005 as an Intake & Admissions Nurse for a large nationwide hospice company. My love for hospice was immediate and I knew that this was my professional life calling. As I have worn many hats in my hospice career, my true passion is meeting and caring for the patients and families.
It is a honor and a privilege to share in the patient's final act of living and I have found hospice to be my ministry and will continue to motivate, encourage and empower every patient and family I come in contact.
Thank you for allowing me to continue on my journey in providing quality and heartfelt care to your loved ones.

Jose Mendoza, MD
At Bridgeway Healthcare and Hospice we understand the special relationships that exist between most patients and their physicians.  My role as Bridgeway’s Medical Director is to partner with our patient’s physician in an attempt to provide collaborative end-of-life care.  The Bridgeway team welcomes involvement from those existing physician relationships and strives to maintain communication necessary to manage that care. 
As a member of the medical staff, our goal is to provide successful symptom management and improve quality of life by guiding and supporting you through the end of life experience.
The Bridgeway team is dedicated to empowering our patients and their families. If you or a loved one is facing a life-limiting illness, you may seek assistance and support through hospice services by calling the friendly staff at Bridgeway Hospice.
