The First Hospice in Houston

Houston Hospice was founded in 1980. In 1989, The Texas Medical Center acknowledged the importance of Houston Hospice in the health care spectrum by donating to the hospice the former 2.5 acre estate of Houston Mayor Oscar Fitzallen Holcombe. Thanks to community support, Houston Hospice opened the Margaret Cullen Marshall Patient Care Center in 1996. Also in 1996, Houston Hospice developed the Butterfly Program to provide for the distinct care needs of youth aged 18 and younger.

Houston Hospice is Different Because it is a Nonprofit Organization

Houston Hospice is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization that is community-supported. Our mission is to provide compassionate physical, social and spiritual support to individuals with a life-limiting diagnosis, and their loved ones, irrespective of their ethnicity or beliefs.

We believe no one should live in pain or in fear of being alone. Houston Hospice utilizes a team-oriented approach to medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to each unique patient.

We're There for You - Wherever You Need Us

Local Houston Hospice teams provide care in patients' homes, in assisted living communities, and skilled nursing communities throughout ten counties. Teams include doctors, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, bereavement counsellors, and trained volunteers.

The care team helps manage pain and symptoms, monitor the patient's condition, maintain hygiene, anticipate needs, assist with medical/insurance forms, listen with compassion, and give caregivers rest. This support helps caregivers have more energy and quality time with their loved one.

Houston Hospice is an in-network provider for most insurance companies and is licensed by Medicare and Medicaid. Houston Hospice is a member of the Texas Medical Center, Texas Nonprofit Hospice Alliance and the Texas New Mexico Hospice Organization. Houston Hospice is accredited by Community Health Accreditation Program, Inc.
