Message from our Executive Director

 

Welcome to the Hospice of the Ozarks' website and resources. We have been providing hospice care in north central Arkansas since 1979, and as one of the pioneer Arkansas hospices, established by community volunteers and leaders, we believe that every individual is unique, special and worthy of quality end-of-life care.

 

Today, we offer not only comprehensive hospice care, we also offer pet therapy, massage therapy, “Pet Peace of Mind” program, bereavement care, and educational offerings on a wide-variety of topics.  We also acknowledge and support Veterans admitted to our Hospice through the “We Honor Veterans” program.

 

Hospice of the Ozarks is a Medicare-certified organization and licensed with the State of Arkansas Department of Health and active with the Hospice & Palliative Care Association of Arkansas, National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization and the National Council of Hospice & Palliative Professionals.

 

We look forward to offering services and programs to north central Arkansas for many years to come, regardless of a person’s ability to pay. As a not-for-profit and subsidiary organization of the Baxter Regional Medical Center, there has never been a charge to our patients or their families for hospice care and this commitment remains a part of our mission. The only exception is if the patient/family chooses to rent a room as a residential patient at our Hospice House. We are able to provide quality services because of the community’s dedication and commitment to support our mission, and we are very grateful for that support.

 

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please call our office at 870-508-1771 or email me at gwood@hospiceoftheozarks.org.

 

In Our Mission’s Service,

 

Greg Wood, M.S., L..S.W., Executive Director
