Hospice of Frederick County was founded in 1980 by a group of community
volunteers who wished to offer compassionate support to terminally ill
patients and their families, and to those who were grieving. Hospice is
not about how you die, it is about how you live.
Over the years, the program has grown in size and scope, but our focus
remains the same: to honor each person's journey through illness or
grief with dignified care, compassionate support and gentle guidance.
Hospice of Frederick County is a non-profit organization and also a division
of the Frederick Memorial Healthcare System that is Medicare-certified,
licensed by the state of Maryland and accredited by the Joint Commission.
Hospice of Frederick County is a member of the Hospice and Palliative Care
Network of Maryland, and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.
