Mission Statement

The mission of Compassus is to honor life and offer hope to individuals facing a life-limiting illness by supporting them with compassion, integrity and excellence.

Description

The Hospice promise is to provide dignity to our patients and families. Hospice care is an aggressive approach to pain and symptom control as well as addressing the emotional and spirtual needs of the dying. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice Compassus seeks to enable patients to carry on an alert, pain-free life and manage other symptoms so their last days may be spent with dignity and quality of life.
