Commitment to Quality
Alive Hospice is committed to providing the highest quality of care for our patients and their families. We constantly measure performance in many ways as a means of gauging the quality of care we provide, to look for areas in which to improve, and to guide our overall approach to hospice and palliative care.
When choosing a hospice care provider, it is important to research quality scores to assist you in choosing the best organization to suit your needs and expectations. Alive Hospice provides its quality scores as a public service.
The following are excerpts from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey of Alive Hospice. Note: The data reported below are the most recent available. Results are posted 4 to 6 months following CAHPS survey data collection to allow for processing and reporting to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
