Partner With Us

NHPCO strives to create partnerships that align with your organizational and business goals, while keeping the focus on the needs of patients, families and care providers in the hospice and palliative care industry. Your company can help us deliver programs that educate, build awareness, and drive advocacy resulting in greater consumer awareness of hospice and palliative care.


We are THE  Industry Leaders: We are the nation’s leading hospice and palliative care leadership organization. As the largest leadership organization working on behalf of hospice and palliative care, our work extends beyond the ranks of our membership. Our accomplishments serve a broad constituency and are recognized as a vital part of the work involving end-of-life care.

We Advocate On Your Behalf: The Hospice Action Network mission extends to all of the services and issue areas impacting patients at the end of life. Palliative care and end-of-life services are  the cornerstone of our expansive advocacy efforts. We advocate on your behalf to ensure compassionate, high-quality care for all Americans facing a life-limiting illness by expanding an ongoing and influential presence on Capitol Hill, mobilizing a growing network of Hospice Advocates throughout the nation, empowering, through new and innovative techniques, an interactive community connecting the public with Hospice Advocacy, and cultivating relationships with the media to highlight issues impacting end-of-life care.

We Are Compliance and Regulatory Strong: NHPCO is in constant dialogue with regulatory bodies to ensure that hospice and palliative care interests are protected and represented. Our Regulatory and Compliance team offers members assistance in planning, reimbursement, regulations and training. The Regulatory Committee closely monitors federal activity around hospice and palliative care issues, reviews proposed regulations and provides appropriate comments, and analyzes and interprets regulations put into effect by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other federal agencies. The Committee work aims to predict the impact of these regulations, provide the hospice community with resources for implementation, and provide the necessary education for hospice providers to achieve and maintain compliance with all relevant regulations.

We Do Our Research: We provide quality benchmarking and tested performance measures. Our research team collects data and provides analysis at the national level, organizing the results in various reporting formats to provide practical and important information.  For example, the annual National Summary of Hospice Care includes information on hospice demographics, practices, and industry effectiveness that can be used by providers to define strategic goals, set operating targets, and monitor trends in hospice practice.

We Enhance Your Knowledge with Education: The best way to keep informed of all the changes occurring within hospice and palliative care is to participate in an NHPCO educational  program. Our goal is to ensure that all educational participants are better informed and have a renewed sense of commitment to delivering quality end- of-life and palliative care to their patients and families.

We Have a Growing Footprint in the Media: NHPCO’s comprehensive media strategy uses print and digital platforms to raise the awareness among the public about the many benefits of hospice and palliative care. Our podcasts alone have exceeded more than 50,000 downloads!
