Mission Statement

Hospice is a concept of compassionate care for the terminally ill and their families. It is a team effort to enhance the quality of life for dying patients and their families as they plan and live their last days together. Hospice is an encouragement for people to live their lives to the fullest, with dignity and peace, until they die. And a presence and a support to the survivors when these precious days have ended.

Description

Hospice of Chippewa County was initiated by a group of local citizens interested in hospice care in 1981. It was incorporated as Sault Area Coomunity Hospice and served its first patient in 1983. In 1984, it received comunity recognition as a United Way organization. In 1990, the current name was adopted to better reflect the area being served. In 1991 through a special agreement with the Chippewa County Health Department, Hospice of Chippewa County became the first Hospice in the Upper Peninsula to be licensed by the State of Michigan and certified for Medicate.
