Welcome to Hospice Family Care
Welcome to Hospice Family Care (HFC), Huntsville and Madison County's only
not-for-profit hospice. HFC provides care and support for terminally-ill patients and their families. Hospice care is not limited to patients with a cancer diagnosis. Our services are available for anyone with a terminal disease.
