Many patients with advanced illnesses are able to remain in the comfort and security of their own homes while receiving hospice care. Directed by physicians, registered nurses coordinate the activities of our hospice care teams that visit these patients.
Hospice services are covered by Medicare or Medicaid, private insurance, private pay or through charitable care. This care is provided to all in need of our services regardless of age, sex, race, creed, marital status, sexual orientation, color, national origin, religion, citizenship status, veteran status, illness, handicap, disability or ability to pay.
