About Us

VITAS® Healthcare, a pioneer in the hospice movement since 1978, is the nation’s leading provider of end-of-life care. Our name, derived from the Latin word for “lives,” symbolizes the VITAS mission: to preserve the quality of life for those who have a limited time to live.

VITAS Healthcare provided $11.9 million in genuine charity care to hospice patients nationwide in 2023. This represents an average of 1 percent of our gross revenues—a ratio that few, if any, hospice providers can match.
