ospice East is a non-profit community based organization serving terminally ill children and adults and their families in Clark and Powell counties. Hospice East was established in 1981 and is governed by a Board of Directors. The program is licensed by the State of Kentucky and is certified by Medicare and Medicaid.
Hospice East is a member of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Kentucky Association of Hospice and Palliative Care and the Kentucky Hospice Network. Hospice East serves approximately 60 patients daily in Clark and Powell counties.
Our program provides palliative care support for persons in the last phase of an incurable disease so they can live as fully and comfortably as possible. Anyone may initiate a referral to Hospice, but Hospice East can accept only patients who have been certified by their physician to have a life expectancy of six months or less.
