Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
The primary goal of our staff is to provide compassion, peace, and dignity to all our hospice patients as well as superior care and treatment to allow for a better quality of life in their final days and weeks.

Comfort Versus Curative
Patients who receive a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less or a child diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, require compassionate, specialized hospice care and treatment. Regional Hospice provides that very care and comfort along with all the specialized care patients need.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
No referrals are required to obtain Regional Hospice. All patients who reach out for our hospice are accepted and placed under the care of one of our physicians.  Online referrals can be submitted on our website if individuals choose to do so.
