Embrace Hospice employs a specially trained interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to provide the latest and most innovative approach to address all aspects of care.
The Hospice Medical Director is responsible for determining whether an individual is eligible for hospice services. They also oversee the rest of the hospice care team, working hand in hand with them to decide on the best plan of care for each individual patient.
We keep our patient’s Primary Care Physician (PCP) as the director of care. Our staff makes sure the patient’s PCP is informed of all of their wants and needs. Our hospice team also employs a Medical Director who oversees all clinical aspects of hospice care and provides medical education to community and facility staff. These physicians actively participate in the admission, eligibility and recertification decisions and actively participate with in-home visits to hospice patients. The Embrace Medical Director provides overall direction for the hospice interdisciplinary staff and assumes overall responsibility for the medical component of the hospice’s patient care program.
In addition, a team of nurse practitioners perform home visits and face to face assessments for hospice patients, often serving as the attending provider as requested by the patient to manage any symptoms that the patient experiences.
