Hospice of Cullman County


Hospice is a specialized form of health care provided by a team of professionals and trained volunteers for individuals who have a life-threatening illness and are no longer being treated for a cure. Hospice provides medical, social, emotional and spiritual care for patients and their families.

At Hospice of Cullman County, our focus is not on dying, but on living life – as comfortably as possible. It is the loving spirit of the Hospice of Cullman County staff that enables the patients and families to experience death with dignity.

Should you or a loved one need Hospice care, it will be our privilege to help you and to provide support. That is why we are here — that is what we do.  

Hospice of Cullman County has helped patients, family members, friends and caregivers in Cullman County since 1986 as our community’s first hospice organization. In 1998, Hospice of Cullman County became a division of Cullman Regional Medical Center in order to provide even better care and support for Hospice of Cullman County patients. The relationship allows for Hospice of Cullman County patients to be admitted to Cullman Regional Medical Center for symptom management, respite or imminence of death without being discharged from our program, unlike other local hospice programs. Our Services include:

  • Provide medical equipment related to the admitting diagnosis
  • Provide medical supplies related to the admitting diagnosis
