Angel House Hospice Care Center serves as the hub for our services in Bladen and Columbus counties.

Angel House Hospice Care Center Has Served Columbus and Bladen County Communities for More Than 10 Years
In 2008, Angel House Hospice Care Center opened. It is a non-profit, community hospice inpatient care center in Whiteville, NC, roughly one mile from Columbus Regional Hospital. We provide around-the-clock acute hospice care, and the six-bed facility is conveniently located to serve patients in Bladen and Columbus counties.
Angel House was made possible through a generous donation from Peggy Ann Triplett, coupled with donations from throughout the community.
We have a good working relationship with Columbus Regional Hospital and the Columbus County Health Department in Whiteville, NC.
A Welcoming Hospice Care Environment
When you enter Angel House, you’ll be greeted by a beautiful, home-like environment of rocking chairs and white picket fences. When your children or grandchildren visit, they can enjoy our specially designed children’s play area.
We’ve tastefully designed rooms with large French doors which open out to patios facing a meticulously landscaped lawn. Partitioned patios provide privacy. When you step off the patio, you are in a beautiful lawn–perfect for visits with family and friends.
Throughout the facility, you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful collection of angels from Mrs. Triplett’s personal collection.
How Do You Know It’s Time for Hospice Care?
Typically, hospice care begins when the patient has six months or less to live or no longer wants curative treatments. Many people mistakenly believe that hospice care should only be called during the last days of life. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Many may not realize:
- Hospice is a Medicare benefit
- Most insurance companies will cover hospice care
- Veterans have hospice benefits through the VA
- Hospice care is provided anywhere the patient calls home, whether it’s a residence, a nursing home in Columbus County or a hospital
- Hospice care is not just for cancer patients
If you need additional information, it’s easy to make a referral—either for yourself or someone you love.
