In the mid-1980’s a group of concerned citizens and medical professionals
recognized the need for high quality end-of-life care. They met in the
home of Dr. O.W. English, and began plans to attain that lofty goal. Hospice
of Lubbock was the first hospice care provider on the South Plains, opening
our doors in 1987. It is the only nonprofit hospice in the Lubbock area.
In 1999, we became affiliated with Covenant Health. We continue to serve
19 counties as the only provider of adult AND pediatric end-of-life care
We have cared for more than 10,000 patients since 1987, and provide services
to approximately 700 patients and their families annually. Nearly 5-10%
of our patient care is covered by charitable donations. No patient has
ever, nor will ever be denied services because of lack of insurance or
the inability to pay for hospice services. We have served over 500 veteran
patients since 2013. Hospice of Lubbock achieved 4 Star Level with We
Honor Veterans Organization as of 2015.
