Our history

Our organization was first conceptualized by Jean Moulthrop Hoogstra. Thanks to the dedication of Jean and many other volunteers, Hospice of Henderson County (which later became Four Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care, then Four Seasons in 2009) was incorporated in December of 1979. We cared for our first patient 1981.

Four Seasons recently marked 29 years of service to our community. Through our tremendous growth and expansion over the years, we have stayed committed to caring for the medical, emotional and spiritual needs of both patients and their families.

Our statistics

At present, we have we have served over 10,000 patients and their families in Western North Carolina. Our mission will not be complete until we are providing services to each and every person who needs them.

Last year we were honored to serve more than 1,100 hospice patients and more than 1,300 palliative patients in our community. With both our hospice and palliative care programs, we served more than 72% of the deaths in Henderson County alone, which is one of the highest proportions in the country.
