Company Profile: Excellence, Leadership, Compassion.

Twenty-five years ago, hospice care in America was a new, unreimbursed, alternative idea in caring for the terminally ill. There were fewer than 100 hospices in the country. Today, hospice is a mainstream provider of services that is fully reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid, managed care providers, and private insurers. There are now over 3,000 organizations providing hospice services in the United States.

American Hospice (AH), the oldest hospice management company in the U.S., is one of the five to ten largest hospice companies in the country. Headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, AH has hub hospice locations in Phoenix, Arizona; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Atlanta, Georgia; Bloomfield, New Jersey; Richmond, Virginia; and Houston, Texas.

The founder and former President of American Hospice, Andrew T. Parker (1942-2009) was instrumental in the development of legislation that resulted in the authorization of Medicare and Medicaid coverage for hospice care. Since its founding in 1992 as the nation's first hospice management firm, American Hospice has focused exclusively on programmatic excellence in hospice. Its reputation for compassionate service excellence is unsurpassed.

Over the years, AH has operated hospices in Arizona, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Georgia, and Wisconsin.
