Calvert Hospice joins Hospice of the Chesapeake

We are honored to announce that effective yesterday, June 14, 2022, Calvert Hospice has become part of the Hospice of the Chesapeake organization through a fully executed acquisition agreement.   We believe the beauty and strength of this merger is that it brings together two local nonprofit organizations to further strengthen the access to healthcare available to the citizens of Calvert County. 

We are currently caring for 590+ hospice patients and their families every day in Anne Arundel, Charles and Prince George’s Counties and with the addition of Calvert County will reach more than 630+ hospice patients each day throughout our region.

To receive more information or inquiry about care services, please reach us at 410-987-2003 or visit www.hospicechesapeake.org.

 

We are working diligently to protect and educate our care teams, our volunteers, patients and their families regarding COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus.
