Welcome to the National Hospice Locator!
Are you a hospice provider and want to add or update your information? Click here
There are two important steps in identifying a hospice provider: 1) finding the hospice, and 2) assessing its quality. The National Hospice Locator (NHL) geo-maps and provides information about every known hospice in the United States - and is now default sorted by highest quality. Find hospices by typing a city into the seach box. Wait for the drop down box to appear, and click on your location. Then, click on a hospice pin (on the map) or name (in the list below the map) for detailed information about that hospice. Information is gathered from Medicare data files; numerous hospice, state, and national public Web sites; and from surveying hospices directly. Hospice Analytics uses several weighted quality metrics to determine quality rankings.
For information about and questions to ask when selecting a hospice, a helpful resource by Caring Connections is Choosing a Quality Hospice for You or Your Loved Ones.
Using search options to narrow your results:
When you use the search box, an auto-fill drop-down box appears to help narrow your search after 4 characters are entered (hospice name, city, county, state, or zip code). Find detailed information on the first 50 hospices meeting your search criteria, sorted by hospice quality (highest to lowest, based on Hospice Analytics criteria), provided at the bottom of the page. If more than 50 hospices appear in the results, consider narrowing your search (e.g., from a state to a city). Specific searches for "pediatric," "prison," or "inpatient facility" may be helpful. You may choose how to sort results.
The NHL averages 12,000+ visits and searches / month. Hospice leaders: Please verify and update your hospice information! Please contact us for information about purchasing entire state or national databases.
