NorthCare Hospice House

A sanctuary for your family when facing serious illness

At Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care, we believe the end of life is a sacred time for families to spend together in comfort and peace.

At NorthCare Hospice House, located on the second floor within North Kansas City Hospital, all are welcome. Here, your family will find caring, expert staff and volunteers who anticipate your needs and a warm, welcoming environment with comfortable spaces and beautiful surroundings.

When a person’s medical needs become too complicated to manage at home, NorthCare Hospice House specializes in short-term inpatient care for serious or complex medical conditions that are better managed in an inpatient care setting.

We are proud to share that NorthCare Hospice House is recognized as a Gold Winner for Best of Northland’s Best Hospice Service!

Expert care when you need it most

NorthCare Hospice House is designed to give sanctuary to families whose loved ones are facing serious illness or the end of life. We help you focus on your relationship, your loved one and your time together. Our expert physicians, nurses, staff and volunteers take care of everything else.

Kansas City Hospice care teams are leading experts in ensuring patient comfort and treating distressing symptoms including uncontrolled pain, shortness of breath and anxiety. NorthCare Hospice House can provide the appropriate level of patient care, which allows families to step back from their caregiving role and simply spend time together as a family.

We provide around-the-clock care to ensure each patient’s physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social needs are met, as well as those of their family members.

When more care is needed than can be provided at home, NorthCare Hospice House offers compassionate care in a welcoming, comfortable setting. Call for a tour or visit us virtually:

How care begins

When you or your healthcare provider call, we will send a nurse to visit you, evaluate your needs, answer any questions, and provide you with options for care. The choice about how and where you receive care is always yours.


Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance policies cover the cost of hospice care. As a nonprofit organization, Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care is dedicated to serving all patients, regardless of their financial resources or complexity of care needed. Our staff will help families determine reimbursement or need for assistance.
