Welcome to Visiting Nurse

CEO

To Visiting Nurse, hospice is more than just a medical term: it’s a philosophy that everyone deserves dignity and compassion when faced with a life-limiting illness. At Visiting Nurse, we care for every patient with an individualized plan of care. We learn what’s most important to them and help to support them on their journey. We ensure that each patient and their family are treated with respect and love.

Our Facility.

Visiting Nurse provides the only free-standing inpatient hospice unit in the region. Our 14 beds are used by patients whose symptoms may need more intensive treatment than can be managed in the home or who may be admitted for respite care. Our facility is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and visitors are welcome at any time.
