As the nation’s leading hospice provider focusing on presence in communities of color and a proud partner of many Hispanic professional and community organizations across the nation, VITAS demonstrates its commitment to diversity in its hiring practices, care strategies and staff training.

During this 30-day period, seven Latin American countries celebrate their anniversaries of independence. Hispanic Heritage Month offers an opportunity for all Americans—but especially individuals who trace their lineage to these and other Latin nations—to reflect on their colorful histories, uplift their peers and families, and look forward to an even brighter future.
