Agrace was founded in 1978 by volunteers who believed in the revolutionary idea that comfort, dignity, and even hope, are possible for those facing a life-limiting illness. Then known as “HospiceCare Inc.,” we grew steadily in south central Wisconsin for decades. In 2011, we added “Agrace” to our name to make it more distinctive.
For more than 40 years, Agrace has been an innovator and leader in both caring for patients and their families, and in educating others about death, dying and grief. We are the largest hospice provider in Wisconsin. Below are our mission and vision statements:
Partnering with patients and families to improve quality of life throughout serious illness
Building a future where every person experiences compassionate care and respect while aging, ill or dying
To us, diversity, equity and inclusion mean the following:
Diversity –The unique traits that individuals possess. It can be inherent or acquired.
Equity –The outcome of “fair treatment.” Fairness looks different based on an individual’s power and privilege in society. While equality focuses on equal opportunity, equity takes it a step further and addresses the accommodations required to achieve a fair outcome. It considers individual differences.
Inclusion –A state in which an individual feels a sense of belonging, valued for their differences, and empowered to participate and contribute freely.Learn more about the ways we show our commitment to these values
We’re here to lift the burden so our patients can live comfortably, with dignity, because that’s what matters most.
We accept patients and families for who they are and share their journey through serious illness. Along the way, we make it OK to talk about illness and dying, and try to anticipate the questions patients hadn’t yet thought to ask.
Everyone deserves to have access to Agrace’s personalized, supportive care, regardless of who they are or whether they can pay.
When days are tough and decisions are hard, we can lean on our team for strength and work with our health care partners to find solutions.
We feel honored when patients and families welcome Agrace into their lives and their homes.
Patients count on us to help them through a once-in-a-lifetime journey. We serve them best by measuring, analyzing and collaborating to deliver consistently high-quality care.
Our communities help build and fund Agrace—our inpatient units and programs. As a nonprofit, it’s our responsibility to deliver quality care, in a sustainable way, and to reinvest any profits to serve our communities even better.
We foster a culture of learning, knowing the hospice and palliative clinicians of tomorrow learn best from the hands-on training Agrace provides today.
