Gulf Coast Hospice of Houston is locally owned and operated by caring healthcare professionals dedicated to ensuring the utmost comfort to our patients and their families. Care decisions are made locally and immediately– with no need to consult with a corporate office in another city or state.

We provide hospice services in your home as well as in a personal care home or an assisted living or nursing facility. Hospital care and respite care for family care-givers can also be provided (based on federal and state regulation). Our experienced staff can discuss the criteria for these specific areas of care.

Our goal is to provide our patients and their loved ones with a level of care and comfort that is both comprehensive and compassionate. We work with the entire family to meet the physical, social, psychological and spiritual needs unique to this stage of life.

We will conduct, at no charge, an assessment of patient eligibility for hospice care seven days a week and on all holidays. We will always be available to answer your questions and provide counsel.

Gulf Coast Hospice will not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion or need.
