NARMC Offers Hospice Care

October 5, 2017

 

 

 North Arkansas Regional Medical Center offers hospice care to our community.

 

Hospice treats the whole person – body, mind and spirit – as they complete their

final journey in life. The patient may elect to receive care at home by our team of trained professionals

or at a local care facility. Hospice considers the entire family, not just the patient, as the unit of care. One goal is to manage the patient’s symptoms so their final life journey may be spent with dignity.

 

How are patients referred to hospice?

The process is simple. Call 870-414-4100 to make the request for Hospice care or ask the patient’s primary care physician to do so. Dr. John Leslie, Hospice of the Hills Medical Director, can assist with referrals, if needed.

 

Who pays for hospice care?

Hospice care is a covered benefit under Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans. Hospice of the Hills does not turn away any patient, regardless of their ability to pay.

 

What diseases does hospice deal with?

Hospice treats the person, not the disease. Any person who is diagnosed with a terminal illness

qualifies. Some of the common diagnoses are: cancer, ALS, stroke, Alzheimer’s, cardio vascular, AIDS, chronic lung disease and renal disease.

 

Where is Hospice care given?

Our highly trained professionals give Hospice care in a patient’s home or in a local care facility per the patient’s request.

 

Extensive services are available for you and your loved ones. Call or email today: Hospice of the Hills 870-414-4100, hospice@narmc.com
