Hospice History

Twenty-five years ago, Harrison County Hospice was established to meet the needs of our community members. Some believe “hospice” is a scary word, but we believe it is a needed resource to help families as they navigate through the transition to the end of life. For the past 25 years, Harrison County Hospice has been your only local hospice provider! We want to take this time not only to celebrate this amazing milestone, but also to share our story …

Each member of our hospice staff has a deep understanding of end-of-life care. Many ask, “How can you do this line of work?”.

Yes, it’s hard, but it’s the intimate moments we share with our patients and families; it’s the laughter and tears; and it’s knowing what a blessing it is to play an active role in providing quality of life care as patients peacefully transition to the end of life.

Our logo is simple — two hands upholding a heart. To us, it is a great representation of what our hospice is all about. “Whatever the hand may find to do, may the heart go forth in union.” This epitomizes the very nature of the work of charity, giving and volunteering, which is what hospice is all about. Through the relationships of the patients and families, staff are continuously reminded of how precious the gift of life truly is. Working in hospice reminds us daily to not live a life or regrets. It teaches us to live intentionally, every day, with purpose and joy.

These past 25 years, it has been a privilege to be a part of this community and we want to thank you for allowing us a glimpse into your lives and for welcoming us into your homes. We are honored to be your hometown hospice provider and look forward to doing so for many years to come! May this be a season of joy and thanksgiving as we live each day to the fullest.
