Hospice of Lubbock
A Ministry of Covenant Health
Know me, Care for me, Ease my way.
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.
Hospice of Lubbock has an interdisciplinary team of trained professionals and volunteers to deliver quality hospice care. Our focus is on you and your family, not the disease.
