FAITH HOSPICE

Caring Is Our Calling

 

Every day at Faith Hospice, we’re reminded of why we do what we do. For our patients. For their families. For the simple fact that it is our calling to provide a higher level of physical, emotional, and spiritual care at a time when we are most needed.

OUR MISSION

 

In fulfilling God’s calling to serve others, we will serve with love and compassion, commit to excellence, and follow Christ’s teachings and example in all we do.

 

OUR HISTORY

 

In 1995, Holland Home started Hospice of Holland Home. The name was changed to Faith Hospice in 2006 when Hospice of Holland Home joined with members of the Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and other Protestant traditions to deliver spiritually oriented hospice care to all faiths.

Faith Hospice provides care “wherever you put your head down to sleep at night,” including private homes, assisted living or skilled nursing facilities, and hospitals. Faith Hospice also provides care at Trillium Woods, our unique inpatient hospice facility in Byron Center.

OUR LEADERSHIP

 

Faith Hospice is made up of a remarkable team of physicians, nurses, aides, social workers, counselors, chaplains, and volunteers. Each called to deliver medical, emotional, and spiritual care with love and compassion.
