“Honoring life by providing comfort, care, and compassion”

Cypress Basin Hospice has been providing family-centered, quality end-of-life care to the communities of Northeast Texas since 1986. We emphasize compassion, dignity, independence and respect throughout every asset of our care and for decades we have been the area’s premier not-for-profit, community owned agency.


Our friendly and professional staff is dedicated to caring for individuals touched by life limiting illness, grief, and loss. We offer a wide range of services to every patient and our hope is that we are able to relieve the physical, emotional and spiritual pain patients and families are suffering from. Cypress Basin has a proven track record and will go above and beyond to ensure that you and your loved ones are always cared for to the highest degree. You can rest assured knowing that patients and families are being served by one of the oldest and most respected hospice programs in Mt. Pleasant, Paris, Sulphur Springs, and all of Northeast Texas.

Camp Brave Heart is a day camp for children ages 6 – 12 who are dealing with grief from the death of a loved one. Camp Brave Heart is a safe place for campers to explore: Feelings, Emotions, Experiences, and Fun in a supportive community setting. Campers will be involved in arts, crafts, conversation, play, food and fellowship, and a memorial service to help them experience a sense of belonging and support in a welcoming environment.

This year, Everett Toyota has generously donated $5,000 and is the presenting sponsor for Camp Brave Heart 2018. Camp Brave Heart is staffed with dedicated professionals and volunteers who are called to work with children and who seek to help children continue to mature in a healthy way physically, spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically.

Use the gifts and skills you have been given and make a lasting contribution to a child and through that child to our communities.

Cypress Basin Hospice has been named a 2017 Hospice Honors Elite recipient by Deyta Analytics, one of the nation’s prominent data gathering companies. Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.

“Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices that provide the best patient and caregiver experiences,” said J. Kevin Porter of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am extremely proud of Cypress Basin Hospice for achieving this highest of honors and I congratulate them on their success.”

Data for the evaluation is gathered from over 1,700 hospices. Only a small select group receive the Honors Elite recognition.

Nelda Davis, RN, president of the Cypress Basin Board of Directors said, “A paradigm shift of viewing palliative care or hospice as a gift instead of seeing it as giving up has the potential to change the way we experience advanced age. This is our goal at CBH with education and community support.”

Tonya Taylor, RN, MSN, MBA, COS-C, vice president of the Board of Directors, states, “Hospice Honors Elite is a huge honor for the Cypress Basin Hospice team! This national acknowledgement is evidence of the quality and excellence in all aspects of the care delivery. This prestigious recognition demonstrates the team effort to achieve Cypress Basin Hospice’s mission “honoring life by providing comfort, care and compassion.”

Cypress Basin Hospice is the Christian faith-based community owned non-profit hospice serving the 16 counties of northeast Texas. It was created by citizens of northeast Texas in 1986. It is known not only for its quality of care, but as well for its unconditional charity, its service to pediatric patients and its community outreach programs for grief recovery, especially its day camps for kids, Camp Brave Heart.
