Home Nursing Agency rebrands as Family Hospice and Palliative Care

Altoona , PA – Home Nursing Agency is growing its hospice program and rebranding as Family Hospice and Palliative Care, Part of UPMC HNA.

Earlier this year, Family Hospice and Palliative Care, headquartered in Mount Lebanon, Pa., was integrated into UPMC as part of Home Nursing Agency, expanding the combined service area for hospice care from 11 to 20 counties in Western and Central Pennsylvania. The combined program serves 4,000 patients annually and is the largest not-for-profit hospice provider in the Commonwealth.

Family Hospice and Palliative Care became one of Western Pennsylvania’s first hospice providers in 1980 and has a rich history of serving patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families, focusing on optimal quality of life for patients.

“Home Nursing Agency is a trusted provider of home health and hospice services in our region,” explains Phil Freeman, Home Nursing Agency president. “As our services have expanded through the decades, our focus and expertise on hospice and palliative care have grown stronger. Aligning our hospice brand with Family Hospice offers the distinct opportunity to feature our commitment to this unique and tremendously important mission, across all of the geographies that we serve.”
