Description

VITAS® Healthcare is a pioneer and leader in end-of-life care with more than 35 years of experience caring for fragile patients and managing care transitions: from hospital to home, from curative to palliative, from chronic to end-stage.

Patients receive individualized services from an interdisciplinary team of hospice specialists—physician, registered nurse, hospice aide, social worker, chaplain, volunteers—who provide four levels of care, according to patient and family needs: routine care in the home, shifts of acute symptom management in the home when medically necessary, round-the-clock inpatient care when symptoms cannot be managed at home, and respite inpatient care when the family caregiver needs to be away.

VITAS lengthens the continuum of care and helps families cope with serious illness by providing palliative and hospice consults and care, medical equipment, medications and supplies. VITAS is always available—24/7, holidays and weekends.

Locations

VITAS has several locations throughout south Florida.
