About VITAS Healthcare

Since 1978, when the company was founded by a minister and a nurse, VITAS has been a leader in the American hospice movement, helping to define the standards of care for hospice and working to ensure that terminally ill patients and their families have ready access to compassionate and effective end-of-life care. Today we care for patients near the end of life in more than 50 programs in major metropolitan areas across the country—guided, as always, by our VITAS values:

  • Patients and families come first.
  • We take care of each other.
  • I’ll do my best today and do even better tomorrow.
  • I am proud to make a difference.
