Welcome to The Hospice of East Texas

Whether provided in the home, hospital, long-term care facility or anywhere else, hospice is a compassionate way of caring for those with a life-limiting illness. The Hospice of East Texas has been providing this loving care to patients and their families throughout the communities of East Texas since 1982. 

Coping with terminal illness presents many challenges – physical, emotional, social and spiritual.  The caring, experienced team of professionals at The Hospice of East Texas is prepared to meet those challenges, and believes that no one, regardless of age, illness or financial circumstances, should have to face death alone or in pain.


(Updated Friday, September 25)  |  Hospice of East Texas continues to closely monitor the COVID pandemic and the regulations set through state, local, and national authorities.

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in Texas/East Texas, with safety of staff, patients, and guests in mind, the following changes will be taking place.

Effective September 25, and until further notice, the following visitation rules will be implemented:

HomeCare Visit Policy:

Families (and patients as appropriate) are requested to wear a mask/face covering while HOET staff is in their homes; this is a cautionary measure for the protection of all.

HomePlace Visitation Policy:

We are mindful that these restrictions are difficult for those visiting HomePlace. Nonetheless, it is our responsibility to do our part to reduce the spread of the COVID virus and protect the well-being of all those who are being cared for, their families, our staff and their families as well.

These changes will be monitored regularly and re-evaluated as needed. Thank you for your flexibility and patience. As in all we do at Hospice of East Texas, the best interests of our patients, staff and volunteers are our top priority.
