Our compassionate hospice team was born out of the realization that while many hospice agencies are started on the principles of providing compassionate end-of-life care, most get bogged down in the complex business aspects of the healthcare environment. The increasing complexity of insurance, Medicare and hospice regulations causes many hospice providers to spend a majority of their time dealing with paper rather than people. But that is not the case with Hospice of America. Hospice Partners has deep hospice industry expertise. By joining our organization, hospice agencies are able to leverage our business acumen and back office support, which allows the local leadership to return their focus to patient care. Hospice Partners is dedicated to the highest level of patient care and customer service. We are continually evaluating our care from the patient and family perspective as well as the quality of care and service perspective. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our patients, their loved ones and our healthcare provider partners who trust us to care for their patients at their time of greatest need. Hospice Partners currently has offices in six states. The company has demonstrated steady growth in each of our existing locations and we are continuing to add to our growing family.
