Healthcare Professional?

“We were stunned by the amazing people who came to care for our loved one. Truly, you answer to a higher calling than the rest of us.”

- A patient’s son

Thank you for being one of those amazing people who truly cares about patients and their families.

We know you wouldn’t be on our website if you didn’t, because hospice is all about tender loving care of patients and their families. That’s especially true of Hospice of the Piedmont.

doctor-taking-pulseThe oldest and most experienced hospice in the region, and the only community-based, not-for-profit hospice in the area, we’ve delivered compassionate pain control and symptom management for tens of thousands of terminally ill people since 1980. Our focus is on comfort rather than cure for patients with an estimated prognosis of less than six months, including those with heart disease, lung disease, cancer, AIDS, and Alzheimer’s.

Our interdisciplinary team can be your expert partner, working with you to extend your care plan and provide unparalleled care for terminally ill patients, with the added bonus of supporting their loved ones of all ages in our full range of grief support programs.

It’s found that early referral can yield the greatest benefits across the entire continuum of care. That’s why we are dedicated to getting patients with life-limiting illnesses into hospice as quickly as possible. We can help you care for your patients, wherever they are: at home or in a hospital, retirement community, assisted living facility, or nursing home. Our hospice and palliative care specialists are glad to consult with you about how we can support your care plan and patient goals. And, our Senior Medical Director will gladly discuss potential referrals and eligibility questions.

We’re proud of our program. Here’s how we can support you and your patients:

The only full-time Senior Medical Director in the area

Our beautiful eight-bed Hospice House (one of only a few licensed residential homes in Virginia)

Our cutting edge Center for Acute Hospice Care (CAHC), a state-of-the art, 10-bed unit at the Northridge Medical Park on Ivy Road for short-term acute symptom management needs that cannot be managed in the home setting

A wide range of grief support classes, events, and activities for loved ones: children to adults

Our robust corps of compassionate volunteers, who deliver a wide range of care service for patients and families

Our hospice and grief support services are available to patients and their families at no cost, thanks to insurance reimbursements and the generosity of hundreds of volunteers and donations to our community-based, not-for-profit service.
