Hospice Care and Services

VITAS® hospice care provides end-of-life care for adult and pediatric patients with life-limiting illnesses. We work with patients and families to provide comfort and preserve dignity in the face of terminal illness. 

Patients coping with serious illness may feel their quality of life has deteriorated as side effects escalate. They are in and out of the hospital and emergency room. They call their doctor repeatedly. They are in pain and frightened.

Hospice can help. Our interdisciplinary team works with the patient and family to introduce gradual, non-crisis transitions from curative care to palliative care to hospice. There is time to talk, try treatments, ensure comfort and dignity.
