Why Work at VITAS?

VITAS began in South Florida in the late 1970s when a minister and a nurse decided there must be a better way to care for people who were dying. The company has grown, stretching from the East Coast to the West Coast today, and our now 12,000+ employees live these VITAS Values every day:

  • Patients and families come first.
  • We take care of each other.
  • I’ll do my best today and do even better tomorrow.
  • I am proud to make a difference.

Fostering Our Employees' Success

As the nation’s leading hospice provider, we have the resources to foster employees’ success, with training, continuous education classes and opportunities for career development. We then give them the flexibility to do their jobs and improve their skills as they see fit, always meeting our high industry standards.

With locations throughout the US, including corporate offices, inpatient units, virtual care centers and medical equipment distribution facilities, opportunities for growth and relocation abound. Historically, general managers, vice presidents and C-suite executives have been long-standing VITAS employees who worked their way to their current roles.

We're Proud to Make a Difference

There is pride in identifying with VITAS Healthcare. You work for a company that is financially stable and ethically sound. Whether it is patient care or government compliance, VITAS does it right, and sets the bar for others. It takes a special person to do this work—and working for VITAS makes you a better person. Just as the values say, you will be proud to make a difference.

VITAS is an equal opportunity employer; we value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status or disability status.
