We are committed to improving and supporting quality of life in all that we do.

Hospice of Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) wants to partner with you and your family to provide excellent care and improve your quality of life. We support your desire to live as independently as possible for as long as possible and will work with you every step of the way to monitor your safety. Our goal is to help you remain wherever you call home, in familiar surroundings whenever possible.

Hospice is a philosophy of care, focusing on patient comfort and quality of life. We care for patients in the comfort of their own homes or in home-like settings such as nursing homes, personal care homes or assisted living facilities. We are on call at all hours of the day (and night) and travel to you from less than an hour away.

"Everybody thinks that hospice is about the patient. People don’t realize that this runs so much deeper than the patient. It runs through the family."

Richard Henson, Hospice of NGMC Patient
