Our care complements your own

Health care providers are invaluable team members in the care of Community Hospice & Palliative Care patients. As trusted advisers, you’re often the first to discuss advanced care options or advance care planning with your patients and their loved ones. When they have questions and you need answers, we’re here for you with the information, education and professional guidance you expect from your partner in caring.

Comfort is peace of mind and relief from suffering 

For patients in your care who live with advanced illness, you can still offer hope for a better quality of life when you partner with Community Hospice & Palliative Care to give them the high-quality, supportive care they deserve.

We recognize the longstanding relationships many providers have with their patients, relationships that can span decades. We value those strong ties and strive to involve you in your patients’ ongoing care, however you wish to remain involved.

Our care teams offer you updates based on your preferences, coordinate care with specialist and consulting providers, and respond to patient situations around the clock, offering you greater peace of mind.
