The Non-Profit Difference

The Non Profit Hospice Alliance (TNPHA) and its members are united in the mission to preserve, protect and enhance the community based, non-profit model of hospice. In the 1980s and 1990s nonprofits provided nearly all hospice care in the United States, but that is no longer the case. Today there are more than 4600 hospices operating in the US and approximately 70% of them are for-profit corporations.

Although both non-profit and for-profit hospices care for patients and families at the end of life, for-profit corporations are in business to turn a profit and pay dividends to their stockholders, while non-profits will put their resources back into services that benefit their patients. Patients, not profits, are at the heart of the work we do.

A recent report by the National Partnership for Hospice Innovation found that

Our non-profit hospices invest in clinical education to enhance care, offer additional therapeutic treatments and grief support, and believe that receiving quality end-of-life care should never be predicated on an individual’s ability to pay.

Not all hospice care is the same, and you have a right to be informed and choose the very best care for your loved ones.
