Nathan Adelson Hospice was founded over 35 years ago following the death of Nathan Adelson. Mr. Adelson was a beloved hospital administrator who cared deeply for his patients and employees. Following a long painful battle with stomach cancer, sadly Mr. Adelson passed away.
Family and friends close to him realized the need for healthcare specific to pain management and responded to that need. In 1978, Nathan Adelson Hospice was established with the mission to provide patients and their loved ones with comprehensive end-of-life care and influence better care for all in our community. We honor the importance of choice and control for those who are ill, so they may define for themselves the most comfortable and dignified manner in which to live.
