Hospice of Laurens County was established in 1987 and has been honored to serve thousands of people since then. While the majority of our patients receive assistance in their homes, we also provide care in our 12-bed inpatient home. The community support we receive is incredible.

Our staff provide outstanding, compassionate care; several hold National Certification. At Hospice of Laurens County we treat everyone like they are family.
