Mission Statement

OUR MISSION The Colleagues of Compassus are committed to keeping The Hospice Promise by delivering the highest quality of care, serving the needs of patients and families and spreading the stories of hospice to those with whom they come into contact. OUR PHILOSOPHY Compassus recognizes death as a natural part of the life cycle, and promotes pain relief and symptom management as appropriate clinical goals. Compassus affirms life and provides hospice interventions that will seek neither to hasten death nor to postpone it.

Description

Compassus understands that psychosocial and spiritual pain is often as significant as physical pain, and that addressing all three requires the skills of an interdisciplinary team.

Compassus believes that patients and loved ones are an integral part of our Plan of Care.
Compassus is a nationwide network of community-based hospice and palliative care programs dedicated to clinical excellence, compassionate care, ad providing comfort and support to patients and their families facing end-of-life issues.
