Hospice by the Bay was founded in 1975 as a local nonprofit agency — the first hospice in California and only the second one in the U.S. They serve Marin, San Francisco and Sonoma Counties in Northern California.
Hospice by the Bay's mission is to enhance the quality of life for our patients, while supporting their families and caregivers.
They provide individual, family or group counseling which offers comfort and support to anyone anticipating or coping with the loss of a loved one.
Services are available to the community and to family members of our patients.
