Our Clinical Team
When you refer your patient to Hospice of Chattanooga,you can trust us to surround that patient with a very highly-skilled team of hospice professionals. The team will work together, and certainly with you if you wish, to develop a care plan for your patient.
Every patient situation is unique so we start with your diagnosis and referral as we meet with the patient and caregiver(s) to hear their desires. Once everyone is on the same page we craft a care plan that is very specific in addressing the stated goal of the patient and family.
Remember: any physician who wishes to remain the attending is greatly appreciated. Our physicians work with you to make sure that your connection to your patient remains intact.
Hospice of Chattanooga, now 35-years-old, has been the leader in setting the standards of hospice care for this region.

You can be confident that your patient will not only be served by a clinical team but will have their spiritual and emotional needs addressed through our chaplains, social workers and bereavement counselors, all recognized as some of the best at what they do.
Upon referral, your patient will be given a team of our hospice-trained professionals made up of a:
- Hospice Physician
- Nurse Practitioner
- Registered Nurse
- Licensed Practical Nurse
- Social Worker
- Bereavement Counselors
- Assistance from a trained volunteer
This team of professional play a part in the care plan for your patient and work together to always meet every need with five-star level service.
If there is ever a time when the needs of the patient require an adjustment to the plan, our team members will respond in a timely manner. Your Hospice of Chattanooga team is a 24/7/365, working together to always deliver five-star service to those who put their trust in us.
We are reflecting back with sadness, but with great memories, at Hospice of Chattanooga. Founding member Christine Brown Little, 91, passed away Monday, May 15. She served as a volunteer from the beginning in 1981. In recognition of her contributions she was named as one of two inaugural Emeritus Board Members of the Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation in 2013. Many of us were blessed to spend time with her at the recent luncheon to honor our volunteers. Always smiling and always encouraging, she was one of the first ones there and one of the last to leave. Until the very end of her time with us, she was a champion for what we do every day. She loved Hospice of Chattanooga and the staff who provides service to so many, and we loved her!

Our very own angel, Delores Long, was featured on NewsChannel 9 in a segment called “Pay It Forward.” Imagine sitting just two rows away from a friend at church, only to find out you're their match for a kidney transplant.
