Hospice of Washington County, Inc. has been serving the community for over 35 years as the leader in end-of-life care and grief and bereavement services.

Doris (Dorey) Glessner

Thanks to the vision, dedication, and commitment of local business person, Neal Glessner, Hospice of Washington County will be expanding its services by building a hospice house to be known as Doey’s House, in memory of Neal’s mom.

The Board of Directors of Hospice of Washington County has discussed the possibility of such a facility in Washington County for over a decade. The Board is fully committed to the project at this time and looks forward to providing general in-patient, residential, and respite services right here in Washington County.

Residents of Washington County in need of in-patient pain and symptom management, respite services, or a place to be cared for with compassion and dignity in their last days will no longer need to leave the county once the doors open at Doey’s House.
