A Letter From Our Medical Director
Steven Brushwood, D.O.

Everyone deserves to have the best quality of life possible and be treated with dignity, especially during the last months of life. Choosing to use hospice benefits helps people live comfortably and with a sense of normalcy,


regardless of a terminal illness.
  Hospice care is intensive comfort care. It relieves pain and symptoms while attending to an individual’s physical, personal, emotional and spiritual needs. Choosing hospice means taking control of your care and making the most of
