VITAS Texas programs have earned hospice accreditation from these esteemed organizations:
National Institute for Jewish Hospice
The VITAS Houston, Fort Worth, and VITAS Dallas programs are three of fewer than 50 hospice organizations accredited by the National Institute for Jewish Hospice (NIJH). NIJH was founded in 1985 to address the Jewish community’s end-of-life care needs. Its recent accreditation efforts focus on providing onsite training to U.S. hospice programs, geriatric centers and hospitals.
Texas and New Mexico Hospice Organization
The VITAS Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth and San Antonio programs are proud members of the Texas and New Mexico Hospice Organization (TNMHO). Founded in 1983, the TNMHO promotes compassionate care for terminally ill patients. Additionally, the TNMHO offers multidisciplinary hospice care education to those who dedicate their profession to terminally ill patients.
