Capital Caring Health is one of the largest and oldest nonprofit providers of Hospice and Advanced Illness Care in the country. Since 1977, we have provided care for more than 120,000 patients – mostly in the home. Our mission is to provide patients and their families with advanced illness care that is second to none. We also have special hospice teams serving children and veterans. On an annual basis, we serve over 7,000 hospice patients and provide more than $3 million in charity care to those who are uninsured and have nowhere else to turn. Almost 90 cents out of every dollar goes to caring for patients and their families.
Forging New Directions in Advanced Illness, Home and Hospice Care
While we continue to build and expand on the high quality, compassionate home-based care that is our signature trademark, we could never have imagined the critical need for in-home care and support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As we begin a new decade together under unprecedented circumstances, we remain steadfast in our mission to care for one and all in need of advanced home care, hospice and elder care, and appreciate our donors, partners, families and friends who help make our critical services possible.
