Who is Hospice Ministries?




Hospice Ministries, Inc was formed by a merger of Whispering Pines Hospice, Mississippi's first inpatient hospice, and Hospice of Central Mississippi, central Mississippi's first in-home hospice service.

On August 1, 1997, this merger created an in-home and inpatient continuum of care, one of only several in the country. Hospice Ministries is community based not-for-profit organization governed by a Board, which is comprised of community leaders. Hospice Ministries serves 31 counties in Mississippi through its offices in Ridgeland, Brookhaven, and McComb. Our inpatient facility is located in Ridgeland and provides care for up to 40 patients.

Hospice Ministries exists to help terminally ill people and their families. Our goal is to help patients live life as fully as possible, as well as to support those who love and care for them.
