We are ​fully accredited by The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.

​Staff Education and Certification​

You will find our nurses have gone beyond their basic education and credentialing to receive special certifications in hospice and palliative care. This extra training enables them to follow best practices and provide the highest quality care in caring for your loved one.

This expert care continues to our pharmacy provider who specializes in hospice and palliative care, offering a deeper understanding of patient needs.​

Our Growing Legacy ​​

We have a history of caring for families in northwest Georgia. Established in 1990, we were the first provider of end-of-life care in our community. 

Today, ​Atrium Health Floyd Medical Center Heyman Hospice Care remains the only hospital-based, not-for-profit provider of hospice services in the area.

Our programs are continually growing to incorporate such added services as special care and recognition for veterans, planning and assistance with pet care, grief support, bereavement counseling and semiannual memorial services.​
