What is Hospice:

We offer a special healthcare option for patients who are faced with terminal illness, and their families. Our multi-disciplinary team consists of providers, nurses, therapists, social workers, clergy, bereavement counsellors, and volunteers. Our team is committed to providing physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs to each patient and their family.
