Compassion Hospice was founded in May of 2007 by local residents after much thought, prayer, and consideration to the state of hospice care in the area. Founded under the premise of “Care without Compromise”, our goal is to be the area leader in providing genuine and honest hospice care.
In reaching for those goals, we made the commitment to attaining national accreditation through the Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) – this 3 year process was completed in 2010 and signifies our meeting or exceeding higher standards in both hospice care and administrative responsibilities. Another goal was to be the leader in Southeast Texas hospice in quality of care and customer satisfaction – we attained that goal in 2015 when we were named Deyta’s 2015 Hospice Honors recipient – compared to more than 1700 hospices nationwide in 18 areas of customer satisfaction, Compassion Hospice was selected as being in the top 7% nationwide! We’re proud and honored to be selected – it’s only through our compassionate team of nurses, medical directors, chaplains, social workers, counselors, volunteers and support staff’s hard work and commitment to excellence, and it shows 🙂
As the area’s only locally owned, nationally accredited hospice, we’re committed to developing a center for excellence in compassionate hospice care and community-wide grief and bereavement services. Our local leadership allows us to devote an increased effort to providing a world-class hospice experience for Southeast Texas’ terminally ill and their families regardless of their ability to pay. To that end we’ve given over $1 million in care to those who would otherwise be unable to pay for their care.
Comfort, dignity, respect. Our priority is our patients, their families, our staff and the community. It revolves around the importance of advocating the needs of the terminally ill. Our care neither hastens death nor prolongs life but strives to make death a natural part of life.
Compassion Hospice is an in network provider for most insurance companies, accepts TexanPlus , HealthSpring and most other Medicare Advantage Plans and is licensed by Medicare and Medicaid. Furthermore, we never deny treatment based on a patient’s ability to pay for services.
We are accredited by Community Health Accreditation Partners, Inc. (CHAP). CHAP sets the highest standards for community and home-based health services. The CHAP seal of approval means that accredited programs like Compassion Hospice have gone beyond the minimum quality levels to meet the industry’s highest nationally recognized standards of excellence.
As Beaumont’s only locally owned, nationally accredited hospice, our highly trained team delivers care without compromise. Let us help you and your loved ones in your home, with the compassionate care you deserve.
