Careers - Join Our Team!
Caring for patients and their families at the end of life requires special people who have the caring spirit and commitment to provide this special kind of compassionate care.  Whether you are interested in a career or in volunteering, Big Bend Hospice is committed to providing the education, tools and work environment to allow you to perform at your best.  We have dedicated ourselves to being the “employer of choice” and the kind of organization that is so focused and responsive to our staff and volunteers that they would not want to work anyplace else.

Hospice work is a calling, much more than a job.  We are all partners in our mission to care for human beings at life’s end:  making a difference in the lives of our fellow employees, as well as the lives of our patients and families.
