When you or someone you love is living with a terminal illness, quality of life matters more than ever. At University of Tennessee Medical Center Hospice Services, our dedicated hospice professionals help our patients across East Tennessee live as fully and comfortably as possible in the final stages of life.
We’re proud to be the hospice partner for University of Tennessee Medical Center. Working together with your hospital care team and under the direct supervision of your physician, we help you easily transition from the hospital setting to hospice care. Hospice is centered on the effective management of pain and other symptoms of end-stage illness. We deliver physical, emotional, social and spiritual support to our patients and their family members.
Hospice is available to individuals with end-stage illness for which there is no cure. But hospice care is not limited to the last few days of a patient’s life. In fact, hospice is designed to provide support throughout the final stages of illness. Hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance.
