About Us

The Only Nonprofit Hospice Serving Houston and 10 Surrounding Counties

Founded in 1980, nonprofit Houston Hospice is the leader in hospice care in Southeast Texas. Headquartered in the Texas Medical Center, Houston Hospice’s service area includes Austin, Brazoria, Colorado, Fort Bend, Harris, Jackson, Matagorda, Montgomery, Waller and Wharton Counties. Care is provided in patients’ homes and in assisted living communities. Inpatient care is provided in local medical facilities and in our own Margaret Cullen Marshall Hospice Care Center located in the Texas Medical Center.

Teams of Caregivers Come to Wherever You Call Home

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. Local teams of doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice aides and trained volunteers come to wherever you call home (private homes, assisted living communities, skilled nursing communities). Expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support is tailored to each patient’s unique situation. One-on-one counseling is available to help each patient’s loved ones.

Care is 100% Covered by Medicare and Medicaid

Houston Hospice is an in-network provider for most insurance companies and is licensed by Medicare and Medicaid.
