About Nathan Adelson Hospice
Nathan Adelson Hospice was founded 40 years ago following the death of Nathan Adelson. Mr. Adelson was a beloved hospital administrator who cared deeply for his patients and employees. Following a long painful battle with stomach cancer, sadly Mr. Adelson passed away. Family and friends close to him realized the need for healthcare specific to pain management and responded to that need. In 1978, Nathan Adelson Hospice became Southern Nevada’s first home care hospice with the mission to provide patients and their loved ones with comprehensive end-of-life care and influence better care for all in our community. Nathan Adelson Hospice also has two Inpatient Units with a total of 38 beds. We honor the importance of choice and control for those who are ill, so they may define for themselves the most comfortable and dignified manner in which to live. Nathan Adelson Hospice is the hospice of choice, employer of preference, training center of excellence and the community's trusted partner for comprehensive end of life care.
