Mission Statement

"Houston Hospice provides uncompromising, compassionate end-of-life care to patients and families in our community."

Description

Houston Hospice is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that is community-based and community-supported. Our mission is not to make a profit. Rather, our only mission is to provide uncompromising, compassionate and respectful physical, social and spiritual support to individuals facing life-limiting illness, as well as their loved ones and caregivers, irrespective of their ethnicity, beliefs or ability to pay.

We believe no one should live in pain or in fear of being alone. We believe everyone deserves to be treated as a unique individual, not just a patient. We are advocates for children's rights to grieve and to have their lives celebrated as full and complete. Patients and their families may be specific about their wishes. Our unique brand of hospice care is provided in-home and in residential facilities. Inpatient and respite care is provided through the Margaret Cullen Marshall Hospice Care Center located in the Texas Medical Center.

Houston Hospice utilizes a team-oriented approach to medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to each patient’s unique situation. We offer educated counsel and compassionate support and bereavement counseling to loved ones and family members.
