Description

American Hospice is a national leader in the delivery of hospice services. We believe that a full complement of interdisciplinary services is central to end-of-life care. American Hospice’s core value is to “change the way terminally ill Americans are cared for...forever!”

Serving several thousand patients every day, American Hospice’s interdisciplinary teams - including physicians, nurses, hospice aides, pharmacists, medical social workers, spiritual care specialists, bereavement counselors and hospice volunteers-share a mission to fundamentally transform the process of dying. They accomplish this mission every day by delivering quality hospice care through a collaborative approach to every patient and family.

American Hospice is committed to promoting strong business ethics and accountability within the Company. A significant portion of that focus is directed at compliance with all applicable rules, regulations and laws that govern state and federal healthcare programs. Accordingly, we invest significantly in training, technology and infrastructure to ensure long-term stability and success.
