NORMAN — McCortney Family Hospice announces the grand opening of its Norman office at 623 N. Porter Ave., Suite 200, just south of Norman Regional Hospital.

The McCortney staff have nearly 100 years of hospice experience in and around Norman, including nurses who are certified in providing highly skilled hospice and palliative care. The McCortney Family Hospice team also offers home health aide, spiritual, social worker and volunteer services to its patients.

In February, the company earned its national accreditation from the Community Health Accreditation Program.

Each member of the McCortney staff maintains strong professional and personal ties to the Norman community.

“As a small, family-owned hospice, our staff focus solely on the welfare of our patients and their families,” said Greg McCortney, McCortney Family Hospice owner and administrator.

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

The McCortney Family serves patients within a 50-mile radius.
