Referral Information
Referrals to our Hospice program come from many sources, including patient and family requests. However, the patient's attending physician must authorize services and all care is coordinated and progress reported to the patient's primary attending physician. If you or a loved one is in need of Hospice Care, you can ask your doctor for a referral to Hospice of Health First.
