Welcome to The Hospice of East Texas
Whether provided in the home, hospital, long-term care facility or anywhere else, hospice is a compassionate way of caring for those with a life-limiting illness. Hospice of East Texas has been providing this loving care to patients and their families throughout the communities of East Texas since 1982.
Coping with terminal illness presents many challenges – physical, emotional, social and spiritual. The caring, experienced team of professionals at The Hospice of East Texas is prepared to meet those challenges, and believes that no one, regardless of age, illness or financial circumstances, should have to face death alone or in pain.
