Providence Hospice

Providence Hospice is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that has been serving Waco and the surrounding area since 1995. The philosophy of hospice care revolves around the importance of advocating the needs of the terminally ill. Hospice care neither hastens death, nor prolongs life but strives to make death a natural part of life. The mission of Providence Hospice is to provide compassionate, quality care and support for the terminally ill and their loved ones.

Our professionally trained staff provides compassionate, quality health care to adults, children and infants facing the advancing stages of any life-threatening illness such as cancer, Alzheimer's, AIDS, end-stage heart and lung disease, and severe birth defects.

Quality care is provided to the patient through:

  • An interdisciplinary team approach: teams consist of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, home health aides and trained volunteers.
  • Pain and symptom management
  • Services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week
