Who We Are

We provide loving care to people with life-threatening illnesses, support to their families and service to the community in a spirit of enriching lives.

What We Do

Alive Hospice is a nonprofit organization that provides compassionate end-of-life care, palliative care, bereavement support and community education. Founded in Middle Tennessee in 1975, Alive Hospice is accredited by The Joint Commission.

Alive Hospice entered the Middle Tennessee landscape in November 1975, only one year after the founding of the first hospice program in the United States. At the time, and through grassroots movements, other hospices also began appearing across the country.

Like the group of individuals gathered together by Alive Hospice’s founders, Dr. David Barton and Dr. John Flexner, what unified those movements was compassionate people committed to helping patients live in comfort until death occurred and families to grieve with support.
