Serving those who serve Patients and Families

The Hospice & Palliative Care Network of Maryland (HPCNM) is a membership association for hospice and palliative care programs, services, and facilities. We represent and support the varied organizations that align with our mission. HPCNM does not endorse a particular facility or service over another. Instead, we offer support, resources, training, education and a legislative “voice” to our member organizations. Finally, we serve as a connection point to those in search of their services. In that spirit, we engage in the following:

  •  Promote efforts to create awareness regarding palliative and hospice care, and increase access to underserved  communities  

  • Deliver continued professional education to those vested in hospice care, including health care professionals, and community volunteers across private sector, faith based and civic organizations 

  • Encourage dialogue in end-of-life care issues 

  • Represent the voice of the hospice and palliative care community in federal and state agencies 

  • Serve as a liaison between national, state and local hospice and palliative care organizations

As a private, non-profit, 501 ©(3) corporation, each day we work on behalf of our member organizations. HPCNM is not affiliated with, or endorsed by any state or federal bureau. HPCNM works on behalf of the collection of agencies, programs and organizations that meet medical, social and emotional needs at the end-of- life.

Contact us today and join our Network as together, we offer Maryland families comfort, dignity and peace. Or, if you would like to make a gift to HPCNM, please visit here.
