Bringing the Best in Hospice Care to Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the Keys
VITAS Healthcare brings compassionate hospice and palliative care to residents of Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, from the Broward county line to Key West.
Responsive End of Life Care
A higher level of responsiveness to hospice patients and their families sets VITAS apart from other providers in South Florida. We have systems in place to ensure that we will be there when patients and their families need us most. Rather than bring patients to us, we take our services to them, wherever they are.
If a patient needs care beyond what can be provided in a home setting, VITAS has arrangements with hospitals and other facilities, including 14 VITAS inpatient hospice units in South Florida, to care for patients until they are stabilized and can return home.
Alternative Comfort Care
VITAS offers holistic approaches to end-of-life care, which include aromatherapy, art, music therapy, reiki, massage and even pet visits.
VITAS brings hospice education and resources to traditionally underserved segments of the Dade and Monroe community. Dedicated veteran liaisons work with veterans who are VITAS patients, helping obtain benefits when eligible.

VITAS is accredited by the National Institute for Jewish Hospice to provide specialized care to Jewish patients and families. We are also accredited by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education to provide clinical education for spiritual care to chaplains and others of diverse faiths.
