VITAS elevates your patients, hospital, and community at large, supporting current and future clinical professionals through education and data.Is Your Patient Hospice-Eligible?
When a patient is routinely hospitalized or admitted to your ED again and again, it may be time to refer to hospice. If you’re seeking a partner in end-of-life care, your patient’s needs are your top priority, but the right provider can benefit the entire care continuum.
The ideal partner is a healthcare thought leader that supports current and future clinical professionals through education and mentorship, which ultimately benefits your patients, hospital, and the community at large. When it’s time to partner with an end-of-life expert, choose VITAS, the provider that sets the standard.
Leveraging our partnerships with eReferral platforms, VITAS utilizes live data feeds and evidence-based protocols to improve care coordination, expedite digital referrals, and ensure timely transitions to end-of-life care, whether in your hospital or the patient’s preferred setting.
The board-certified medical directors who oversee VITAS interdisciplinary teams can also support your team by helping physicians meet graduate medical education requirements. Our medical directors are available as lecturers and can oversee training at your hospital or within our inpatient hospice units (IPUs). Our IPUs can also be utilized for practical training opportunities.
“We wanted to move my wife home from the hospital. We turned to the VITAS organization associated with the Sentra Hospital, Woodbridge, Va. The contacts were in the hospital, so discussing the services VITAS provides was very easy. Once the decision to move my wife from the hospital, VITAS literally took it from there. The hospital contacts keep me informed. Transportation, the bed in our home, home health aides and nurses were all arranged.”- Bing H., Virginia
“VITAS hospice staff took care of my Dad in his final hours. From the first coordinator who met us at the hospital, to the last nurse that was with him... everyone was wonderful. They addressed every concern and took care of everything for us, so we could concentrate on our remaining time with my Dad. I highly recommend their hospice service, in the unfortunate instance you would ever need them.”- Christine L., Florida
