Hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care for the terminally
ill that allows patients to die in peace and comfort at home with loved
ones close by. The region’s only nonprofit hospice serving Lubbock
and 17 surrounding counties, Hospice of Lubbock provides a wide range
of services to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of terminally
ill patients and their families. In addition, it is the only facility
in the region to offer pediatric hospice services.
