Lifting spirits. Supporting you and those who love you.


Peterson Health offers the compassionate care and concern for our patients and their loving families at absolutely every level of care…and life moment. 

There is no greater honor to explain the services and gift of Peterson Hospice when we bravely face the diagnosis of a terminal illness. 

This is what Peterson Hospice does best. This is where we raise the bar. 

As the only non-profit hospice service in the entire region, we provide the support for you or your loved one and help you navigate through the most tough transition of your lives, day in and day out. Whether at home or in an assisted living or skilled nursing facility, Peterson Hospice will be right by your side. 

Dr. James Young – Medical Director for Peterson Hospice, the only not-for-profit hospice in Kerr County. He is board certified in Hospice and Palliative Care.

Our team of specialized experts include the only board certified medical director and physician in hospice/home health/transitional and palliative care in the area, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, nurse aides, social workers, loving volunteers, chaplains and counselors. 

We support our patients and families 24/7, every day of the year.  And best of all, thanks to generous donations from our community, Peterson Hospice has never billed a family for expenses. Peterson Hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans. 

Let us be your choice for hospice care. It’s our mission to make every single and lasting moment in life count and to make the last moments in life comfortable and be filled with dignity and compassion.

We offer a free consultation with our experienced and certified hospice registered nurses. We know that it’s difficult and confusing to know exactly when it’s the right time to call and inquire about hospice services. We can cut through the website inquiries and tell you exactly how and who qualifies for this important service. Please call us at anytime at 830.258.7799.
