We strive to create an environment of teamwork and participation, where, through continuous performance improvement, people pursue excellence and take pride in their work, the organization and their personal development. We believe that the quality of our human resources - Hospice personnel, physicians and volunteers -are the key to our continued success. We maintain financial viability through a cost-effective operation to meet the Hospice's long-term commitment to the community.
Hospice affirms life and views death as a natural process. Hospice exists to support and care for persons in their last stages of incurable illness, helping them live as fully and comfortably as possible and enabling them to have a peaceful death with resolution of loss.
Hospice will neither hasten nor postpone death but will help the patient and family reach a degree of preparation for death that is satisfactory to them, offering appropriate care and support to fulfill individual and family needs.
The welfare of each individual patient is the principle reason for the existence of Hospice, and thus the recognition of the worth of the patient and his/her family is paramount.
Hospice is dedicated to equal respect for all, regardless of race, color, creed, natinal origin, sex, handicap, or socialeconomic status.
All engaged in Hospice Care, whether professionals or volunteers, must strive to meet the highest standards of health care and individual caring.
As a community based agency, Amedisys Hospice is committed to providing proper care of the dying patient and his/her family as well as educating the community on Hospice. Hospice Care is provided to any patient regardless of their ability/inability to pay.
