Most hospice patients are served where they live – in their homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. For those whose needs cannot be met at home, we offer three inpatient hospice facilities where patients receive round-the-clock, short-term medical and respite care.
Our palliative care consultation service works with patients and their physicians to improve quality of life, identify and aggressively treat symptoms, clarify a patient’s condition and prognosis, and set achievable goals that honor a patient’s wishes.
