Spring Valley Hospice distinguishes itself by offering all four levels of care available within the Hospice Benefit. It is important to know which levels of care are available as you select hospice. Many hospices offer only routine Home Care and Respite. General Inpatient Care and Continuous Care require more resources and coordination. Hospices that provide all four levels of care have the best and most resources to care for those they serve.
In addition to these services, Spring Valley Hospice also offers Palliative Care, which can be provided alongside curative treatment and home health. Click here to learn more about our Palliative Community Resources
We are clinically responsive. Spring Valley Hospice’s Standards and Expectations are consistently demonstrated to our patients, families, referral sources and community. When people are anxious, facing difficult news and circumstances we are responsive. We hear each week how this standard distinguishes our caring team.
When someone contacts us with an inquiry about hospice services, we immediately respond with a phone call and schedule a meeting time. This is such a difficult time for patients and families. Spring Valley Hospice is responsive so patients and their families know and feel they aren’t alone.
Spring Valley Hospice owns and maintains its own durable medical equipment. We are able to respond within hours and deliver needed equipment to the place where the patient calls home. We measure every after hours phone call and visit to ensure prompt and in-person response.
