Why Choose Us?

We are proud to be a Hospice Honors Recipient,  an annual honor recognizing the hospices that continuously provide the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results from patient families compared on question-by-question basis to a national average score. Award recipients are identified by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of twenty-four quality indicator measures.
