Across the country, we help patients of all ages make the transition to post-acute care at home. We’re proud to partner with leading physicians and medical professionals to help patients manage their health in the comfort of home.
We are local.
With hundreds of locations across the nation, we partner with local physicians, nurses and therapists to provide high-quality and compassionate care to nearly 90,000 patients annually. And we are the preferred post-acute care partner for leading hospitals and health systems around the country – operating more than 100 joint venture locations nationwide.
Our hospice team approach
Our goal is to function as an extension of your medical practice. The broad and diverse needs of hospice patients have led us to build a multidisciplinary team of specially trained medical professionals with extensive hospice experience. This structure enables us to maintain a high-quality continuum of care.
Our hospice team includes:
• Physicians/medical directors
• Speech pathologists
• Registered nurses
• Registered/licensed dieticians for certified nutrition support
• Certified nursing assistants
• Bereavement specialists
• Medical social workers
• Spiritual support professionals
• Physical therapists
• Respite care
Our hospice patients receive a wide range of services, including:
• Pain and symptom management
• Medical supplies, equipment and medication
• Bereavement counseling
• Professional social work
• Emotional support and spiritual counseling
• Assistance with personal care, feeding and light housekeeping
Our hospice program is perhaps the best example of our mission in action — to provide exceptional care and unparalleled service to patients and families who have placed their trust in us.
Evaluating the need for hospice care

• Is not eating or drinking well enough to sustain weight
• Receives optimal treatment, but health continues to decline
• Exhibits weight loss of 10 percent or more in six months
• Experiences recurrent infections and frequent hospitalization or ER visits in the past six months
• Shows significant decline in overall health due to multiple problems
• Has an ejection fraction of 20 percent or less
• Has a 6 month prognosis should the disease follow its natural course
