“Hope, dignity, and love, the miracle of Hospice”

What is Hospice?

Hospice is a customized care plan designed to help our patients move through the end stages of life with dignity while maintaining a high quality of life.

At Nevada Regional Medical Center our hospice program provides in-home, compassionate care for both the patient and their care-givers.  Hospice is provided to any person for whom such care is deemed appropriate by a physician.

Hospice is about more than just offering medical services.  By bringing compassionate care to both the patient and their care-givers we assist with the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of everyone involved in the hospice experience.

We call together a special tam of people designed to meet the particular needs of our patients.  This team might include: physicians and nurses; nursing assistants; social worker; chaplain; physical therapists; occupational therapists; bereavement counselors; volunteers.
