David Hernandez

In October 2021, David Hernandez embarked on a mission that would redefine compassionate healthcare in North Texas. As the founder and CEO of Champion Healthcare, his journey from a one-man endeavor to a recognized mid-size hospice, as deemed by the NHPCO, has been one fueled by a profound commitment to the well-being of others.


Champion Healthcare has blossomed under David's leadership, delivering hospice care to patients with terminal illnesses, palliative care for those with chronic conditions, and end-of-life support. The organization's growth has been exceptional, having expanded from zero to sixty patients in just a year and a half, with a team of dedicated professionals rising from five to forty. Emblematic of their ethos, the staff champions care for each patient, exemplifying their tagline, "Mind, body, and soul."


David's career in healthcare began at the age of 18, as an EKG tech in a hospital. Over the years, he transitioned into senior living and worked in nursing homes for six years, honing his skills in marketing and development for skilled nursing facilities. Pursuing higher education, he trained to be a family and child therapist, only to find that his true calling lay in the direct impact of healthcare. After a decade-long sojourn in Dallas, David found his purpose in hospice care, a field where he continues to make a lasting impact every day.


David contributes his expertise as an executive member of the national board for DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS). As he stands at the helm of Champion Healthcare, his life story serves as a testament to the transformational power of compassion and resilience.
