Hospice care includes many services and support.  Please contact us if you do not see a service you feel is important for you and your family.

Heartsway Hospice takes great pride in the breadth and quality of our services.  Many loving stories from families we have cared for show our passion for your needs during this process.


Dr. Robert Sansom - Medical Director of Heart’sWay Hospice
Dr. Lawrence Roe - Assistant Medical Director/Longview       
Dr. Gerald Akpassa - Assistant Medical Director/Carthage
Dr. Bart Pruitt - Assistant Medical Director/Winnsboro

The Medical Directors oversee all medical services of the agency and:
• Consult with attending physicians regarding pain and symptom control
• Review patient eligibility for hospice services
• Act as a medical resource and as a liaison with physicians and the
medical community

Attending Physician
Each patient must have an attending physician who is licensed to practice
in the state of Texas. The patient is free to choose their own attending
physician. We can provide referrals to area physicians if needed or a
Heart’sWay Hospice Medical Director can serve as your attending physician
at your discretion.

The hospice works with the physician in determining medical care related
to the terminal illness, in prescribing medications and treatments and in
determining the best plan of care.

For Medicare and Medicaid patients, the attending physician may bill as
usual for his/her services. If another physician, other than the attending, tries
to bill Medicare or Medicaid for services related to caring for the terminal
illness, their claims will be denied. However, any physician may provide
care and bill for a condition that is not related to the terminal illness.
