Pike County Hospice - Pike County's First Hospice Established in 1993



Pike County Hospice was the very first hospice program IN Pike County, created by the citizens OF Pike County, FOR the residents of Pike County. The staff and board of the Pike County Health Department and Home Health agency was excited to add Hospice Care to our list of amazing services in 1993.

2001 came and our Home Care & Hospice Foundation was created to help our not-for-profit organization fill the financial gaps between the agency’s income and costs, with an overall objective to provide high quality hospice and home health care to every area citizen regardless of ability to pay. We were thrilled in 2017, to be able to expand our service to our neighboring counties Audrain, Lincoln, Montgomery, and Ralls.

25 years later, we have had the pleasure of serving hundreds of patients and their families. Until today, our brand has been shared with the Health Department and Home Health programs and has served our communities greatly. We are so proud of our Hospice program that we want our image to better reflect our compassionate and outstanding service, we are now very excited to present the new look of Pike County Hospice.
