Now is your opportunity to join one of our teams. We’re hiring compassionate, skilled hospice medical directors throughout the U.S.

What would a VITAS medical director tell you? Here’s Monique Williams, MD, MSCI:

Hospice is rewarding because you spend impactful time with patients and their families. I can’t think of many specialties that allow that kind of involvement and time commitment for each patient and family. VITAS Healthcare is a great, committed environment. We have phenomenal marketing, innovative community outreach, and an excellent clinical team. There’s a positive VITAS culture that nurtures people’s development. It’s very obvious—and unusual in a big company.


Dr. Joseph Shega’s career is built on expertise in geriatrics, palliative medicine, and hospice care. “Reflect on your reasons for choosing medicine,” he advises, “and then take the paths that take you there or return you to your roots.”
