About our Organization

At Lower Cape Fear Hospice, our Vision is to serve everyone touched by a life-limiting illness. Our Mission is to provide the highest level of care and comfort to patients with life-limiting illness, support and counsel families and provide education to the community.

Teamwork           We promote an atmosphere that fosters creativity and learning. Creativity thrives when people work together as a team. We believe that teamwork is incredibly important for output quality, employee morale, and retention.

Commitment      We are committed to providing exceptional care and service to our customers. This is achieved by allocating the resources to increase our staff to patient ratios, thereby increasing clinical visits while lowering clinician caseloads.

Compassion        We recruit and retain the most talented clinical and support staff in the area that demonstrate compassion by their sensitivity and awareness to the needs of a diverse workforce and patient population.

Respect                We pride ourselves in treating all individuals – patients, visitors, and co-workers with courtesy, dignity, and respect.
