There are many Hospice options, but McLeod Hospice is the best choice for many reasons.
We are not-for-profit.
- Funds are used to support services, not pay shareholders or owners.
- We provide hospice care to any qualified patient, no matter whether they have insurance or an ability to pay.
McLeod Health is your region's largest healthcare team with 5 hospitals.
- McLeod Hospice patients can be admitted to any McLeod Hospital with the assistance of the Hospice staff.
- Under federal law, patients enrolled in other hospices must discharge their hospice before admittance to any hospital.
- If McLeod Hospice patients are taken to a McLeod Emergency Department, their costs will be covered.
- Other hospice providers will not cover the cost of a McLeod ER visit and the hospice patient or their family may have to handle out-of-pocket costs.
We have two full-time hospice-certified physicians, spending ALL their time caring for hospice patients. They do not split their time between a private practice and hospice.
We are the region's only hospice with a Hospice House for patients and their families who meet criteria for inpatient care.
- Office Hours: Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
- 24/7 coverage through an emergency on-call service, including holidays. A qualified nurse is available to accept patient calls, referrals and to arrange for patient services as needed.
