When Hospice is The Right Choice
Hospice Care is available for individuals in the VitalCare service area who are physician-referred and have a lifespan prognosis of six months or less.

Patients are accepted on the basis of need regardless of age, sex, religious affiliation, or nationality. Ability to pay is never a criterion for acceptance to Hospice Care.

VitalCare and VitalCare Hospice are nonprofit, Medicare-certified, Blue Cross-approved, and CHAP-accrediated (Community Health Accreditation Program) providers of home healthcare programs and services. VitalCare is affiliated with McLaren Northern Michigan.
