VITAS Cares for Greater Cincinnati Like No Other Hospice
If you or someone you love has a life-limiting illness and lives in the Greater Cincinnati or southwest Ohio area, VITAS can help. We serve patients and their families in Butler, Warren, Clinton, Hamilton, Clermont, Brown, Adams and Highland counties.
VITAS Brings Hospice Home
VITAS brings hospice care to your home, whether a private residence, long-term care community or nursing home. Our interdisciplinary teams of experienced hospice clinicians work with you and your family to introduce gradual, non-crisis transitions from curative care to palliative care.

Four Levels of Care
In addition to our routine level of care, we also provide shifts of acute symptom management in the home when medically necessary—we call it Intensive Comfort Care. For symptoms that cannot be managed at home, VITAS provides round-the-clock inpatient care at The Drake Center, hospitals and other healthcare facilities, until the patient can return home. Our inpatient units also offer respite care to the patient for up to five days when the family caregiver must be away.
In addition to expert clinical care, VITAS offers holistic approaches to end-of-life care, including pet visits and music, art and massage therapy.
There When You Need Us
Help is always available with VITAS. Telecare responds to patient and family questions 24 hours a day, even on weekends and holidays, and can dispatch a team member to the patient’s bedside if necessary.
When it’s time to focus on the patient, not the disease, call VITAS at 513-399-5514.
