We offer specialized teams to care for military veterans, and we work with faith leaders to bring hospice to their parishioners.

VITAS Innovative Hospice Care®, a pioneer and leader in the hospice movement since 1978, is the nation’s largest provider of end-of-life care. Our name is derived from the Latin word for “lives” and symbolizes the VITAS mission: to preserve the quality of life for those who have a limited time to live.

VITAS has enjoyed dynamic growth since it’s founding as a volunteer organization by a United Methodist minister and an oncology nurse. Today, VITAS employs 11,000 professionals who care for terminally ill patients daily-primarily in the patients’ homes, but also in the company’s inpatient hospice units as well as in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living communities/residential care facilities.

VITAS Innovative Hospice Care®, a pioneer and leader in the hospice movement since 1978, provides a special form of care for people with life-limiting illnesses.
VITAS cares for adult and pediatric patients with a wide range of life-limiting illnesses, including cancer, stroke, heart disease, lung disease, liver disease, kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, Alzheimer’s and AIDS.
When medical treatments can no longer cure a disease, VITAS’ team of hospice professionals still can do a great deal to control pain, reduce anxiety and offer needed spiritual and emotional support to patients and their families. Hospice services are provided wherever people with life-limiting illness reside and could benefit from hospice care:

  • Patients’ homes
  • Dedicated inpatient hospice units
  • Hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living communities and residential care facilities

VITAS services are coordinated with the patient’s physician and provided during regularly scheduled visits by hospice team members to manage the patient’s care. If a crisis should arise, VITAS is able to respond 24 hours a day, seven days a week. VITAS also provides a continuum of other palliative services to complement traditional hospice care, helping patients and families clarify their care goals and achieve comfort and symptom relief.
