The mission of Summit View Hospice is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support to patients with life-limiting illness, as well as their families and loved ones, while assisting patients and families to live with dignity and comfort as they cope with end of life issues.
Hospice is primarily a home care program, but services may also be provided in a hospital or nursing home. Our hospice team helps the patient and family make informed decisions about care-giving, teaches the necessary skills for “hands-on” care and helps with the approaching and actual death. Hospice also offers help through the bereavement period.
We strive to create an environment of teamwork and participation, where, through continuous performance improvement, people pursue excellence and take pride in their work, the organization and their personal development. We believe that the quality of our clerical personnel, physicians and volunteers—is the key to our continued success. We provide physicians an environment that fosters high quality diagnosis and treatment. We maintain financial viability through a cost-effective operation to meet the organization's long-term commitment to the community.
Summit View Hospice is guided by a tradition of personal, clinical and technological excellence. We believe that serving patients in the community setting is the most important activity of the organization.
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of patient care with compassion and respect for each person.
