When the time comes for hospice care, families want the best for their loved ones. An essential early step to finding quality care is having conversations about where to receive hospice care. But how do you find the best care for your loved one?

As you weigh your options, consider hospice care at Compassus. We believe everyone has the right to live with comfort and dignity, no matter their circumstances. Here are some of the benefits of hospice care at Compassus.

Care Delivery Model

The Compassus Care Delivery Model follows a set of standardized practices that reflects our “Care for who I am” culture that focuses on each person as an individual as well as a patient, to improve their quality of life in meaningful ways. We ask for each patient’s desired outcomes and use our proprietary process to achieve them.

Whether it is our focus on safety, disease management, respect for autonomy, staying in their home and out of the hospital or quality of life, our Care Delivery Model addresses these outcomes and puts processes behind each.

We Are Accredited

At Compassus, independent accreditation for home health, hospice, and home infusion agencies is a key element of our approach to regulatory rigor and standards of care.

Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP) provides guidelines and conducts unscheduled, in-person visits to ensure we meet the industry’s highest quality standards.

What Is CHAP Accreditation?

Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP) is an accrediting organization for home and community-based health care. CHAP has been granted authority by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to determine whether providers meet CMS quality standards and the Medicare Conditions of Participation.

“CHAP accreditation is a testament to our commitment to quality and operational excellence. Evaluation by a third-party accrediting agency ensures we fully comply with Medicare certification.”

– Jen Hale, Vice President of Clinical Quality and Standards for Compassus
