About Alive Hospice

Alive Hospice entered the Middle Tennessee landscape in November 1975, only one year after the founding of the first hospice program in the United States. At the time, and through grassroots movements, other hospices also began appearing across the country. Like the group of individuals gathered together by Alive Hospice’s founders, Dr. David Barton and Dr. John Flexner, what unified those movements were compassionate people committed to helping patients live in comfort until death occurred and families to grieve with support. For more information on Alive Hospice please visit:
