Hospice services provide care and support to both patient and family
when palliative care and comfort, rather than cure, is the focus in a
terminal illness. The goal of this physician-ordered care is to identify
and control symptoms of physical, emotional and spiritual pain. When
the patient is physically comfortable, all involved are more able to
deal with emotional and spiritual issues, and live as fully as possible.
Most third-party payers provide hospice benefits to cover all or part
of the cost of care related to terminal illness. St.Vincent Anderson
Regional Hospital's Hospice program is a certified Medicare and Medicaid
provider. We are licensed by the Indiana State Department of Health and
accredited by The Joint Commission.
