About Us

Who We Are

Gilchrist is a nationally recognized, nonprofit leader in serious illness and end-of-life care. We provide counseling, support and care to people at every stage of serious illness, so they may live life to the fullest. Furthermore, we are deeply committed to giving people the clear information and loving support they need to make informed choices about their care.

A Trusted Leader

For more than 20 years, Gilchrist has been providing compassionate care and support for people with life-limiting illnesses. Most noteworthy, our programs offer comprehensive, coordinated care that addresses all of your family’s needs—whether they are medical, emotional, social or spiritual.

More than Hospice

You may know Gilchrist best for the care we provide people near the end of life. Yet, we offer so much more than hospice. Above all, today’s Gilchrist extends services to individuals with serious illness who need care and support well in advance of hospice care. While we provide hospice care for children and adults, we also provide counseling and support before and after the loss of a loved one.
