What Is Hospice?

Hospice is a philosophy of care that focuses on quality of life and comfort for the patients living with a life limiting illness. It is a type of care that puts comfort, dignity, and quality of life ahead of aggressive, curative treatments. The patient and family are the focus of care. Our compassionate hospice team is able to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support during one of life’s most challenging times.
