Defining Quality Hospice Care in Columbus, Ohio
Our mission is to provide the best hospice care in Central Ohio. We are proud to be owned and operated locally. We have a passion for helping members of this great community. We believe that the best definition of care is determined by the wishes and needs of patients and their families. This hospice care includes our commitment to allow our patients to remain wherever they call home through their entire journey. To accomplish this, we strive to support not only our patients but the team that serves them. Our clinicians are empowered with the time and resources necessary to provide the best level of care possible. We are proud to employ staff members dedicated to quality hospice care, including physicians, nurses, home health aides, social workers, and chaplains. Our expert staff provides physical, emotional, and spiritual support through various levels of hospice care to give each patient and family the peace-of-mind they deserve. Each position is focused not only on maintaining comfort and dignity, but on educating our patients and families on what to expect during end-of-life changes.
Defining Quality Care
Our team carries low patient caseloads. For our patients, that means more visits, better care, and the comfort they deserve. We aim to keep our patients at home and avoid rehospitalizations. By spending more quality time at bedside and communicating effectively and often with patients and their families, we provide the best hospice care in the Columbus area.
We have great relationships with other businesses in the community. If we have a patient in a nursing home or assisted living facility, we work together with the facility staff to provide expert end-of-life care. Our team members take time to communicate effectively with our community partners to properly take care of the needs of patients and their families.
We Are Local
We are proud to be Ohio-made. Every decision we make about hospice care is made in Columbus with patients and families in mind. Our team is rooted in the communities we serve and are dedicated to delivering the highest quality of care for their fellow Central Ohio residents. Because our decisions are made at the local level, we are able to be agile and provide services that lead to improved care.
Specialized On-Call Team
Patient needs can arise at any moment. We have a 24-hour call line with a Nurse Manager and team of field staff to provide quality care, day or night. The dedicated professionals on our staff work with patients after-hours, on weekends, and during holidays. We created our specialized on-call team because we are confident and passionate about meeting the needs of our patients and their families.
Commitment to be There
When a decline becomes evident, we will increase visits or provide 24/7 continuous care when it is deemed clinically appropriate. We pride ourselves on our staffing levels and our ability to fulfill this promise for each and every hospice patient. With a dedicated team and manageable caseloads, each one of our patients will experience the dignity and comfort from our expert hospice care professionals that they deserve through their entire time with us.
We provide supplemental care that goes above-and-beyond the requirements set by Medicare. We truly believe that each patient deserves the best possible hospice care in the area. We use supplemental care to help control symptoms and stress through a variety of non-medical interventions, in addition to any medical care that is also being provided. Music therapy, massage therapy, and pet therapy are included in this type of care.
Thank you for the care and comfort that you provided all of us. Your hospice team members went above and beyond and even attended my Aunt’s funeral service.

I think the word “magnificent” describes the care that Capital City Hospice provided for our Mom. Each and every one of their staff members treated Mom as family.
There are not enough words to express our family’s sincere and heartfelt appreciation for Capital City Hospice and their staff.
