Celebrating our 40th Anniversary


This year is our 40th anniversary of caring for the families of Kansas City. On November 3, 1980, Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care was founded to bring expert care, peace of mind, comfort, guidance, and hope to people who are affected by life-limiting illness or by grief.

Now more than ever we WISH we could be together for a jubilant celebration of our successes and our aspirations for the future. Instead, we embark on the next best thing and that’s a virtual celebration called Sunday Night Live on October 11,

I invite you to join us from the comfort of your own home to celebrate with us and to forge a future where each person in our community is valued from life through death and each family is supported in their grief. Celebrate 40 years of excellence!

Kanssas City Hospice

The 40th Anniversary of Kansas City Hospice:

  • In response to the community’s need for better end-of-life care, Kansas City Hospice was founded locally in 1980.
  • Programs evolved over the next 25 years. In 2005 a new name was adopted — Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care.
  • 2006 saw the opening of Kansas City Hospice House™, the first local free-standing hospice facility. In 2015, NorthCare Hospice House joined our family of services.
  • In 2006, Passages was created to expand mental health programming; and in 2009 grief support services grew with the integration of Solace House Center for Grief and Healing.

It’s a privilege for families to entrust the care of their loved ones to our organization, and each of us is honored to bring expert care, peace of mind, comfort, guidance and hope to people who are affected by life-limiting illness or by grief.

Thank you and “see” you on October 11.

All my best,

David S. Wiley

President & CEO
