Physician Services

Our medical directors actively participate with the admissions and eligibility decisions with our patients.

What are physician services as they pertain to hospice?

We keep our patient’s Primary Care Physician (PCP) as the director of care. Our staff makes sure the patient’s PCP is informed of all of their wants and needs. Our hospice team also employs a Medical Director who oversees all clinical aspects of hospice care and provides medical education to community and facility staff. These physicians actively participate in the admission, eligibility and recertification decisions and actively participate with in-home visits to hospice patients. The Grane Medical Director provides overall direction for the hospice staff.
