Hospice Eligibility

How do I know if my loved one is eligible for Summa Health Hospice?

Patients who are eligible for hospice care are:

  • Patients who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and have a life expectancy of months rather than years
  • Patients that can no longer benefit from curative care and have agreed to a comfort-oriented philosophy of treatment
  • Patients and families that have agreed to care that is primarily home-based. "Home" may include the patient's home, a caregivers home or residential care facility (nursing home)

At Summa, Hospice isn't a place – it's a concept of care. Our team is always willing and available to talk to you about your specific situation and how we can help.

New home care patients can call 234.200.1210 to discuss your options.
