Indications for Hospice
The Hospice philosophy is about providing comfort and focusing on quality of life. Patients must have a terminal illness and a prognosis of six months or less if the disease runs its natural course, and be certified by a Physician.
At Azorna Healthcare, a range of services and hospice expertise deliver demonstrable benefits and improved results for our patients and their families. The depth and breadth of these core competencies and services extend beyond federal requirements and serve to differentiate us from other providers.
