Hospice is a philosophy of care that accepts death as a natural part of life. When death is inevitable, hospice seeks neither to hasten nor postpone it.

Hospice provides a community-centered, patient and family focused, cost-effective way of humanely caring for terminally ill persons. Hospice provides care that establishes pain control and symptom control as appropriate clinical goals and understands that psychological and spiritual pain is as significant as physical pain.
