About Klamath Hospice

In 1982, Klamath Hospice was founded on the dedicated work of volunteers and support of a generous community, who wanted a model of care that would provide comfort, compassion and dignity for the dying. In 1979, the founders of Klamath Hospice, who were all volunteers at the time, began working on creating a hospice care model for the residents of Klamath County. On July 19, 1982, Klamath Hospice officially admitted their first patient. During those early years, volunteers provided the care, while the community continued to provide the economic support. As Klamath Hospice grew, employees were hired and (with Medicare certification) revenue was increased through government and insurance payments.

Klamath Hospice is the only non-profit hospice in Klamath Falls and is a United Way agency. We are also the only hospice that services certain areas in Northern California that include the cities of Tulelake, Dorris, and Macdoel. We are a member of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Oregon Hospice Association, and the California Hospice and Palliative Care Association.
