It is a great honor to be a part of a company that does such incredible work. I have been at bedside as a friend and family and also as a nurse. My life experience and my educational experience allows me to see what a great honor working hospice truly is. You are not a number to us.


Heather Billingsley

Patient Care Coordinator

Since becoming a part of the Safe Harbor Hospice family, I have learned there is no greater honor than holding the hand of a patient in their final hour. I strive for our patients and families to feel the dignity, comfort, and compassion that comes with being a part of this organization.
