Supporting Hospitals with Patients Requiring Complex ModalitiesVITAS is equipped to take on patients who require complex modalities—patients for whom other hospice programs may lack resources or expertise to provide the necessary care.
Supporting Hospitals With Patients Requiring High-Acuity CarePatients who require high-acuity care can strain your hospital's resources and negatively affect your performance rankings. VITAS can help by transitioning your eligible patients to hospice.
Open Formulary for Patients Transitioning Home From HospitalsVITAS maintains an open formulary to ensure that patients transitioning to our care can continue the evidence-based therapies that help improve symptoms and quality of life.
