Why Choose a Non-Profit Hospice?

At Hospice of Chesterfield County, instead of focusing on generating profits for stock dividends, we reinvest revenue to improve patient care and family bereavement support programs. As a non-profit Hospice, our bottom line isn't a number.  It's the pride we take in successfully delivering a deeper, more personal level of care to our patients and their families.

As a non-profit Hospice, Hospice of Chesterfield County provides care for all individuals, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation or ability to pay.

Costs are covered under Medicare, Medicaid, most private insurance plans, HMOs, and other managed care organizations.  Many health insurance companies offer a comprehensive Hospice care benefit plan. If the patient has Medicare or Medicaid, they may become eligible for the special Hospice benefit. However, care will not be denied or diminished because of an inability to pay.

Additional funding for Hospice is provided through a variety of sources including memorials, honorariums, individual gifts, endowments, bequests, memberships, and donations by churches, businesses, corporations, United Way, community organizations, and individuals. All donations to Hospice of Chesterfield County are fully tax deductible.
