Teams of physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, counselors and trained volunteers provide physical, emotional and spiritual support in homes, assisted living facilities, and in our Margaret Cullen Marshall Hospice Care Center located in the Texas Medical Center. Teams work with primary care physicians, patients and families to identify goals and create a unique plan of care for each patient. We offer educated counsel and compassionate support and bereavement counseling to loved ones and family members.
