About 3HC

Our History

Home Health and Hospice Care, Inc. – 3HC – was founded in July 1981, as Mount Olive Home Health in Mount Olive, North Carolina. In the years since, the private, 501 (c)(3), not-for-profit health care company has grown into one of the largest of its kind in North Carolina and is recognized nationwide as a leader in the home care industry.

In its early days, the company served clients with a professional staff of two, a part-time registered nurse and a part-time physical therapist. In 1984, it changed its name to Home Health and Hospice Care, Inc., and in 1989, established its corporate headquarters in Goldsboro where it now remains. The company quickly earned a reputation for quality and compassionate care.

From a staff of three in 1981, the company currently employs almost 500 professionals in eight clinical offices, the Kitty Askins Hospice Center, the Crystal Coast Hospice House, and the corporate office.

Today, 3HC continues to provide quality care in the comfort of the place you call home through an array of services, such as skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work and home health nursing aides. 3HC is accredited by CHAP (Community Health Accreditation Partner), a designation shared by only the best providers, in addition to being Medicare and Medicaid certified.

“Success for 3HC over the next 25 years will continue to focus on the needs of our patients and the community. Continuous improvement in quality of care is the driving force to meet those needs. Through the great people of 3HC and the use of innovative technology and techniques, we will continue to be the leader in the home health and hospice services provided to the citizens of eastern North Carolina.” – Dean Lee, 3HC President
