The mission of Big Bend Hospice is to provide compassionate care to individuals with a terminal illness, comfort to their families and emotional support to anyone who has lost a loved one.


Our symbol, the oak tree, was designed by Buck Heister, one of our first volunteers and later one of our patients. With deep roots for stability and spreading branches for shelter, the Big Bend Hospice tree provides a refuge for those embarking on the last part of life’s journey.


Big Bend Hospice was established in 1983 by a dedicated group of local community volunteers seeking a more dignified, compassionate and peaceful way to end life. Since that time we have grown to an organization with over 200 employees serving over 1400 families each year.


We are all partners in our mission to care for human beings at life’s end: making a difference in the lives of our fellow employees, as well as the lives of our patients and families.
