Our History, Mission & Vision

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:

Our Mission

Providing personalized care and support, where and when you need it, for life’s changing health needs

Our Vision

Building a future where every person experiences extraordinary care and guidance while aging or seriously ill

 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Agrace

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.
