Crater Community Hospice was established in 1995 after a need for hospice services was identified by both John Randolph Hospital in Hopewell and Southside Regional Medical Center in Petersburg. At that time, both facilities were community hospitals and recognized that a community-based hospice could better serve the local community. As a non-profit organization, Crater Community Hospice is governed by a Volunteer Board of Directors and an appointed Chief Executive Officer. With a vested interest in the community, Crater Community Hospice strives to provide not only high quality hospice services, but also multiple community services necessary to improve upon the overall quality of life to all who reside in the area.


Hospice is a concept of care derived from medieval times, symbolizing a place where travelers, pilgrims and the sick, wounded and dying could find rest and peace. Today, hospice care offers a program of care for patients facing terminal illness. The focus of care is quality of life and comfort care delivered compassionately by professionals who specialize in end-of-life challenges.

When it’s Time

Anyone can refer a patient for hospice care. If the referral is made by a family member or friend, the Crater Community Hospice Admission Team will contact the patient’s physician to ensure that the patient qualifies for hospice care. Crater Community Hospice provides care where the patient lives, in their home or nursing facility or in a hospital setting. The care is provided by a team of hospice professionals and volunteers who provide physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual support to the patient and their family. The Crater Community Hospice Care Team includes physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, bereavement counselors and trained volunteers.
