About Hospice & Community Care
The mission of Hospice & Community Care is to give hope, comfort, and compassion to our community when needed most.
Our vision for the future is to remain the area’s first and best choice in the services that we provide.
Our shared values of integrity, stewardship, compassion, quality, teamwork, and innovation guide our organization.
Founded in the early 1980s, Hospice & Community Care was the result of friends seeking to aid one woman’s struggle with cancer and her desire to remain at home until her death. These community leaders advocated for and worked diligently toward establishing hospice care in York County. Their unfailing belief is that everyone deserves hope, comfort, and compassion at the end of life. Originally named York County Hospice, as operations expanded throughout the upstate to include Chester, Lancaster, Cherokee, Fairfield, and Union Counties, we became known as Hospice & Community Care
Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, Hospice & Community Care employs a team of caring, compassionate professionals who, along with nearly 250 volunteers, support our patients and their loved ones every day. For more than 35 years, we have guided thousands of terminally ill people to live their final months in a comfortable, caring atmosphere.
A non-profit agency, our mission of care for the community drives us. Seeing a need for expanded care, in 2008 Hospice & Community Care opened the Wayne T. Patrick Hospice House, an inpatient facility on the current campus.
Our revenue is applied to helping patients, their families, and our community at large. This allows us to provide hospice services to anyone eligible without regard to ability to pay.
