Our History

Hospice of North Carolina was started in 1980 by a group of wonderful volunteers who caught the vision of what a plan of care called “hospice” could mean to a patient who was facing death due to a disease. There were local nurses in the hospitals who knew there was a better way to take care of patients in the dying process than what was offered at the time.

Over time, the reach of Hospice of North Carolina has grown as the area’s population grew into the outlying regions of southeast Tennessee and northwest Georgia and we are proud to serve more than 30 counties in Tennessee and Georgia.

One of the nurses in 1980 who played a significant role in founding Hospice if Chattanooga is Christine Little, who was a volunteer and stalwart supporter of what began in a little corner room at the local health department. Watch her story here.
