Nathan Adelson Hospice was founded over 35 years ago following the death of Nathan Adelson. Mr. Adelson was a beloved hospital administrator who cared deeply for his patients and employees. Following a long painful battle with stomach cancer, sadly Mr. Adelson passed away. Family and friends close to him realized the need for healthcare specific to pain management and responded to that need. In 1978, Nathan Adelson Hospice became Southern Nevada’s first home care hospice. Nathan Adelson Hospice is the only non-profit hospice in Southern Nevada, and provides hospice and palliative care to more than 350 patients each day.
