Founded in 1977 as a division of the Hospital Home Health Care Agency of California, Providence TrinityCare Hospice began as a small, local team that has since evolved into a vibrant regional program with five clinical teams and a staff of more than 180 dedicated professionals.
An innovator and leader in providing hospice care for patients and families in need of end-of-life services, Providence TrinityCare Hospice was one of a select group of hospices in the nation chosen to participate in a demonstration project through the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. The project assisted the federal government with the legislative proposal that made hospice a Medicare benefit to all beneficiaries. Years later, Hospital Home Health received the first hospice license issued by the State of California in recognition of the organization's efforts in lobbying for hospice state licensure.
Providence TrinityCare Hospice has received special commendations in 2002, 2005, and again in 2008 from the organization's accrediting body, Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) in recognition of the development of innovative programs, excellence of community health care practice, and quality performance.
