Our Nonprofit Approach

We believe when families have to make difficult decisions, paying for hospice care shouldn’t be one of them. Our focus is on our patients and their families, not profit. Since our services are covered by private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare, they are almost always available at no cost. And no one is ever turned away due to inability to pay.

As a community-based, nonprofit organization, we’re able to create programs based on the specific needs of our community. Programs like our complementary grief support groups, classes, camps, and events are available to anyone in the community, whether they have used our services or not. Loss affects many lives, which is why we ensure family and friends of any age can grieve in a safe, supportive place.
Hospice of the Piedmont is also proud to have two amazing in-patient units. Our serene eight-bed Hospice House and a ten-bed Center for Acute Hospice Care are open to qualified patients who have more specialized comfort care needs. The majority of our patients do not need these facilities, but we’re prepared for all patients’ changing needs. We’ve cared for patients in surrounding counties since 1980, making us the longest standing and most experienced hospice in the area. We’d be honored to care for you or your loved ones as well.

Our Service Area

Our People

Our people are part of what makes us special. We believe that providing hospice care is a calling, not a job, and our team is full of individuals who feel called to provide care to those in need. 

Interdisciplinary Team

A medical doctor or director, nurse, home health aide, spiritual counselor, social worker, bereavement counselors, and volunteers make up a patient’s interdisciplinary team. This team is dedicated to caring for the whole mind, body, and spirit of our patients and their family unit. We believe by addressing not just physical symptoms, but also emotional, social, and spiritual pain, a better quality of life is within reach.

Senior Leadership
