Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We strive to provide compassion, peace, and dignity to all hospice patients with exceptional care and treatment to allow for a better quality of life in their final days and weeks.

Comfort Versus Curative
When patients are diagnosed with a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less or a child is diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, they require hospice care and treatment that is compassionate and specialized. Regional Hospice provides this specialized care with comfort.

You won’t need a referral when working with Regional Hospice. Every patient who reached out for our hospice will be accepted and given care by one of our physicians. Online referrals can be submitted on our website.

Hospice is Affordable
