Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America (PMMA) first offered hospice services in Farmington, Mo., to extend end of life services to residents of Farmington Presbyterian Manor and their families. Licensed in 2005 by Medicare, Presbyterian Hospice of Mid-America staff included a medical director, administrator, clinical coordinator, one hospice aide, one nurse, one social worker, one chaplain, and one volunteer and was located in an office at Farmington Presbyterian Manor.
In late 2005, a duplex located on the Farmington Presbyterian Manor campus was converted into an office for the hospice program. The move gave Presbyterian Hospice a chance to expand and have space for staff meetings, patient and family meetings and staff offices.
In 2007, PMMA expanded its services to include patients in the home setting and in other long-term care communities. The decision to expand into the Wichita, Kansas, market was made in 2014. The Wichita hospice was first licensed in February 2016, and the hospices were renamed Heart & Soul Hospice in June 2016.
Today, Heart & Soul Hospice provides compassionate end-of-life care guided by Christian values to patients in Iron, Madison, St. Francois, St. Genevieve and Washington counties in Missouri and Butler, Cowley, Harvey, Kingman, Reno, Sedgwick, and Sumner counties in Kansas.
