Our Hospice is a comprehensive program that assists patients and their families with physical, emotional, and spiritual needs that may accompany a life-limiting illness. With more than 75 years of combined experience, Hospice of Evangelical’s nurses are solely dedicated to the specialty of end-of-life care. Our nurses are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to answer questions, discuss concerns, visit, and provide support.

Hospice of Evangelical support extends beyond the death of the patient. Hospice families continue to receive care and bereavement support for at least 13 months.
