Hospice of Southern Illinois provides specialized care services for patients and families who are faced with a terminal illness. Our focus is on patient care including symptom management, emotional support, spiritual support, and psychosocial intervention.
- The only local Hospice provider with a full-time physician.
Our approach is multi-disciplinary and includes the area’s only full-time physician, pharmacist, nurse practitioner, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, bereavement counselors and volunteers who, together, form a support team around each patient. We address issues most important to the patients’ wants and needs at the end of their life while focusing on improving the individual’s quality of life.
Besides the excellent care we provide, one thing that sets Hospice of Southern Illinois apart from other hospice providers is that our admission and social workers staff explore all potential sources of payment with the patient and/or their family to ensure the patient receives the most benefit from their insurance provider.
