What is Hospice:


    When medical science has done all it can and the search for a cure gives way to the need for comfort, you can offer your patients and their families a place to turn for help and hope: Hospice.

    Hospice serves as an extension of your practice, lending patients and families the physical and emotional support they need when they need it most. With skilled nurses and trained volunteers available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year, Hospice provides a valuable support structure to complement your care.

    By referring your terminally ill patients to Hospice, you provide them with an alternative in care designed to help them make the most of their time with their loved ones, with the least amount of pain and discomfort possible.

    Whether the patient is at home or in a residential facility, the Hospice team will work with you to implement a Plan of Care that meets with your approval. While your patients and their families usually have no out-of-pocket costs, as the attending physician of a Hospice patient, you will be reimbursed monthly by Medicare or private insurance for patient care and Care Plan Oversight.

    Hospice lessens the burdens for patients and families, and makes it all easier for you. When treatment is no longer an option for your patients, we hope you’ll put Hospice on their side and yours. If you have any questions or we can be of assistance in any way, please e-mail or call Hospice.
