and people are far more than
their medical conditions.
At Deaconess Hospice, we are more than an organization of hospice professionals – we are proud members of communities across southern Mississippi. Compassionate, quality service is our mission. And to us, service means getting to know our patients on a personal level.
We know the people we serve, understand their needs, and tailor healthcare to ensure the best journey possible.
We’re passionately committed to making healthcare better every day by leading the industry in clinical excellence and service quality.
We empower our clinicians and staff to embrace the communities they serve, because the best care happens in the context of strong relationships.
Each patient and family we are privileged to serve is unique. Our ongoing mission is to design a specific plan to help you or your loved one live as fully and comfortably as possible in the final stages of life – in the comfort of your own home or place of residence.
Under the direct supervision of your physician, our highly skilled hospice professionals deliver quality, compassionate care. We also include family in the process, offering valuable information, guidance and – most of all – support.

Hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance. Hospice is available to individuals with end-stage illness for which there is no cure. But hospice care is not limited to the last few days of a patient’s life. In fact, hospice is designed to provide support throughout the final stages of illness.
Help your patients find comfort and avoid costly, unnecessary treatments.
