Capital Caring was founded when hospice was in its infancy in America.  Our founder, oncologist Josefina B. Magno, MD, understood that people living with serious illness needed care, whether or not there was a cure for their condition. Her determination with leading policymakers, more than 40 years ago, guaranteed all Americans to receive hospice care through the Medicare Hospice Benefit.

Advocating for the Best Care Possible

Today, we are proud to carry on Dr. Magno’s legacy through our advocacy and outreach on Capitol Hill. We also continue to our efforts by working with like-minded organizations and partnerships who believe that everyone who is medically eligible should have access to hospice care, regardless of their ability to pay.
