In 1983 members of the Junior League of Longview, employees of the Longview Cancer Center and Good Shepherd Medical Center and other concerned individuals from the community banded together to investigate the need for hospice services for the terminally ill in Longview and the surrounding area. With a start-up grant from the Junior League and many hours of work by committed volunteers, Hospice Longview, Inc. was founded in 1984 as an independent, non-profit, community based hospice which is governed by a board of community leaders and health care professionals. We served our first patients in April of 1985.
In recent years, we discovered that our original name, Hospice Longview, had regionalized us in the minds of many people. From the beginning, Longview has been our home and always will be, but as we look forward to reaching new goals and dreams for our organization, we’ve decided to give ourselves a new name as well. HeartsWay Hospice of Northeast Texas will continue a 30 year tradition of caring for those who invite us into their homes to assist them in their time of need.
HeartsWay Hospice of Northeast Texas is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. All gifts are tax deductible. We are fully accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Program, ensuring the very best quality of care. We are proud members of the Texas and New Mexico Hospice Organization and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.
