Mission Statement

Hospice is a program designed to provide comfort and care for people who are terminally ill during their final stages of life and support for their caregivers. The goal of hospice is to provide physical care for the patients and counseling to their families rather than to cure illnesses. Hospice allows the patient to remain in his or her home until death through the support of the Hospice team, and provides bereavement support to the family. Admission to the Hospice Program requires a written certification from a medical director of hospice or physician member of the hospice interdisciplinary team and the attending physician.
