Renown Hospice Services

Personalized Care Plan

Our hospice team will meet with patients and caregivers in to learn about concerns, answer questions and establish a plan of care tailored to each patient’s specific needs. 

Pain and Symptom Management

The multidisciplinary hospice team works to make sure that medication, therapies and procedures are designed to achieve the goals outlined in each care plan, including symptoms that cause pain, discomfort and distress. Renown Physicians and APRN offer in-home visits and are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also offer free medication delivery through Renown Pharmacy. Coverage also includes all equipment and supplies related to terminal disease. 

Emotional Support Services

We understand how difficult this time is for everyone involved and offer 13 months of bereavement services for families, friends and caregivers. 

Respite Care

Caregiving is not easy. Respite care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers, giving them to rest and reset. We offer respite care (up to 5 days) to prevent caregiver burnout

Volunteer Support 

Having hospice volunteers is another way we go above and beyond for our patients. The primary goal of our volunteers is to provide empathy and companionship to both the patient and their loved ones during difficult times. 


Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who pays for hospice?
    Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances cover hospice at 100%. Coverage includes medications, equipment and all hospice staff services.
  • What Is the difference between not-for-profit and for-profit hospice care?
    Not-for-profits use donations and monies raised through fundraising events to ensure they are able to provide amenities such as indigent care, extensive grief care services and education opportunities for caregivers and the public. On average, not-for-profit hospices spend more on comprehensive care for patients, provide more in-home care, and admit higher-cost and higher-acuity patients than for-profits. Not-for-profit hospices treat everyone, regardless of their ability to pay or their level of care needed.
