Compassionate Hospice Care in St. Louis Focused on Comfort 

Perhaps no aspect of care is more precious than Hospice Care.  Choosing hospice care is a very personal decision, and Bethesda Hospice Care understands the challenges faced when choosing hospice care. 

We are dedicated to providing compassionate care focused on your loved one.  Choosing hospice services is an affirmation of the meaning of your loved one’s life, not giving up.  It allows you to control symptoms and complete “unfinished business.”

You can rely on Bethesda Hospice Care to provide the highest quality care, symptom management, emotional support as end of life approaches, and a program based on your needs and those of your loved ones.  We employ experienced hospice medical professionals skilled in symptom control and state-of-the-art pain management who will coordinate care with your loved one’s personal physician.

As one of the top St. Louis Hospice Care providers, our professional caregivers go wherever you call home to treat and manage pain.  We will provide services that support you and your loved ones as a unit physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.  

Bethesda Hospice Care Provides:

  • Interdisciplinary Care
  • Holistic Care
  • Physical Care
  • Emotional & Spiritual Care
  • Respite Care
  • Short-term Inpatient Care
  • Bereavement Care

Bethesda Hospice Care is here to answer any questions you may have and to sit down with you and your loved ones to discuss your unique situation.  Hospice support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We are here to help!  Please call us today for more information at 314-446-0623, or email us at hospice@bethesdahealth.org.

We are reluctant to think about our own mortaility and that of our loved ones. In fact, most decisions for end-of-life care are made under incredible stress, and family members are left making their "best guess" about what a loved one would want for end-of-life care.

Additional Services-Our Caring Community

The Gift of Being a Hospice Volunteer  We all have gifts to share and a purpose in life larger than ourselves.  As a hospice volunteer, there are many ways one can connect and let those we serve know they are not alone and that someone cares.  Contact Ruth Rincker at (314) 373-7041 or rarincker@bethesdahealth.org for information about becoming a volunteer.   

In a Time of Need  “Be Not Afraid-Companioning the Grieving and the Dying” is an interactive workshop designed to equip people to more effectively companion others who face loss in their lives.  Contact Dorothy Gannon at (314) 373-7032 or dmgannon@bethesdahealth.orgto have this special course come to your organization or church.


Veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country and we believe it is never too late to give them a hero’s welcome home or acknowledge them for their service. In 2012, Bethesda Hospice Care joined the We Honor Veterans (WHV) awareness campaign conducted by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs. By providing veteran centered activities using practical resources we have been able to progressively increase abilities to serve Veteran patients at end of life. As of July 2015, Bethesda Hospice Care achieved Level Four WHV Partner status, which is the highest level to obtain. Bethesda Hospice Care is specialized in identifying the unique needs of veterans and their families by focusing on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment.
