Since 1982, Hospice of Kankakee Valley has been the area's only not-for-profit community-supported hospice. HKV is dedicated to providing compassionate physical, emotional, spiritual, and social support to terminally ill individuals and their families.
We provide excellence in hospice and palliative care through traditional programs and services, as well as, complementary therapies including music therapy, massage therapy, and pet programs.
Originally organized as a volunteer-only hospice, we now have over 80 paid staff members and over 100 volunteers.
We have completed Level 3 of the NHPCO and Veteran Administration Partnership
