Elena Lopez Sanchez, founder and president of HOLA, after 25 years, has seen her vision for her home country manifested.

Originally from Jacona, Michoacan, Mexico, Elena traveled to the United States of America after the death of her mother. She was nine years old. That experience instilled in her a compassion for all who are ill and all who have lost loved ones. She has a continuing desire to help others.

In 1987, Elena obtained her Nursing License in Los Angeles, California. She worked at Century City Hospital, City of Angels Hospice, AIDS Healthcare Foundation, In Patient Consultants, St. Vincent's Hospital and Kaiser Permanante.

Elena found her calling in hospice care in 1992.

In 2005 she received her certification as a Manager of Care Planning from the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).

She builds close relationships with patients and thrives in such an environment. Following the passing of one of her beloved patients whom she honors, Elena also honors the memory of her mother, grandmother and patients by continuing compassionate care for those who are terminally ill. There are plans to build another hospice in Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico.

Hola Hospice of the Angels, HOLA is the first hospice in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico where people may live with compassion, dignity and never die alone.
