About Legacy HospiceLegacy Hospice is a not-for-profit agency dedicated to serving the families of southwest Virginia with expertise and compassion. Legacy maintains state licensure, Medicare certification, and Medicaid certification.
In addition to continuously demonstrating that they embody our philosophy of caring, all our caregivers must pass rigorous professional standards including thorough reference checks, ongoing professional education standards, skills competency checks, licensure verification, etc.
