VITAS Healthcare: Hospice and Palliative Care

VITAS Healthcare offers hospice care at home, whether you live at a private residence, assisted living community or nursing home in the Chicago area. Its hospice teams bring a range of hospice services to seriously ill patients and their families in LaSalle, Joliet, the Illinois Valley, and the greater Chicago area. For patients who cannot remain in a private residence, VITAS provides inpatient hospice care throughout the Chicago area. VITAS also has inpatient hospice care facilities with homelike settings at Mercy Hospital and St. James Hospital. Inpatient hospice care gets symptoms under control so the patient can return home as soon as possible.
