Hospice

In collaboration with the patient’s attending physician, we provide support and comfort care to the terminally ill who can no longer benefit from curative treatment. The medical director is also available for physician input in the hospice program. Our patients have a life expectancy measured in months rather than years.

We strive to help make the dying person comfortable so he or she is free to live as fully as possible until they pass on. Continued support is offered to family and friends after the death of their loved one. Hospice Program offers:
