Hospice is not a place but a concept of care that is recognized as the model of quality, compassionate health care delivery for people facing life-limiting illness. Hospice care utilizes an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals and trained volunteers that address symptom control, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes.
Hospice of West Alabama has been providing care to terminally ill patients and their families since 1982. We are a 501(c)(3) private non-profit organization, a United Way Partner Agency, and a Joint Commission accredited hospice provider. We care for terminally ill patients in Bibb, Greene, Hale, Fayette, Lamar, Pickens, and Tuscaloosa counties, and we have the only free-standing hospice inpatient facility in West Alabama.
COVID-19 NOTICE TO VISITORS: We are always working diligently to protect our fragile patient and family population. We respectfully ask that anyone experiencing signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection (such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat) or who has had contact with someone with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, call our office before attempting to visit. In addition, anyone visiting a COVID positive patient will be asked to wear a mask in the public areas of the facility.
