We Have a New Name

Community Hospice of Texas and Providence Hospice announce company name change to Community Healthcare of Texas

Name Change reflects evolving Serious and Terminal Illness needs of Patients and Families

Community Hospice of Texas and it affiliate Providence Hospice, providers of not-for-profit hospice care since 1996, announced today a name change that will better reflect the ever changing and growing needs of patients after a serious illness or terminal diagnosis. For the past 24 years, Community Hospice of Texas and Providence Hospice have provided both adult and pediatric hospice care to the Dallas/Fort Worth and Waco markets. Bringing both company names under one organizational name makes sense in our changing healthcare environment. Effective January 1, 2020, the organization will be known as Community Healthcare of Texas.

“This name change reflects our commitment of continuing to provide the best care for patients and families as they navigate their healthcare needs when diagnosed with a serious or terminal illness,” stated Victoria Jingle, Chief Executive Officer. “While Community Healthcare of Texas continues to grow and deliver services to adults and children that need support for hospice and palliative care services, this name change allows us to continue to expand and improve our mission and goals as an organization.”

For more information about the name change or to learn more about Community Healthcare of Texas, please contact Robin Carter, Chief Strategy Officer, at rcarter@chot.org or call (817) 870-2795.
