McCortney Family Hospice announces grand opening


McCortney Family Hospice recently celebrated the grand opening of its Norman office, 623 N. Porter Ave., Suite 200, just south of Norman Regional Hospital.

Combined, the McCortney staff have nearly 100 years of hospice experience, including nurses who are certified in providing highly-skilled hospice and palliative care. In addition to medical and nursing care, the McCortney Family Hospice team offers home health aide, spiritual, social worker and volunteer services to its patients. In February 2014, the company earned its national accreditation from the Community Health Accreditation Program.

“At McCortney Family Hospice we focus solely on the welfare of our patients and their families,” said owner and administrator Greg McCortney. “Many hospices tend to place a higher emphasis on the bottom line and corporate profits. For us it’s all about making sure our patients and their families receive the exceptional level of care and support they need at a very difficult time in their lives.”

A former hospice chaplain, McCortney and his wife, Ashley, established the original McCortney Family Hospice in Ada, where he serves as mayor. He is a member of Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin’s Hospice Advisory Board, and a two-time president and active member of the Oklahoma Hospice & Palliative Care Association.

The Norman office serves patients within a 50-mile radius which includes most of the Oklahoma City metro area. For more information about McCortney Family Hospice services, call 360-2400.
