Commitment, Compassion, and a Can-Do Attitude: The VITAS Difference

Three pillars frame the everyday work experiences of VITAS employees as they deliver exceptional hospice care, collaborate with supportive teams, and maintain our professional standing as the nation’s leading provider of end-of-life care and an employer of choice.

Commitment, Compassion, and a Can-Do Attitude.

Those three character traits lie at the core of the VITAS Difference.

What can you expect from the VITAS Difference if you begin a career with us?

  • Commitment: a vow to build trust and loyalty by maintaining open and persistent communication with patients and colleagues, and by following through on promises and expectations with team members, our patients, their families, our healthcare partners, and the communities we serve
  • Compassion: a promise to demonstrate heartfelt support by listening carefully to others’ needs, honoring the precious moments that our patients and their families invite us to share, and treating everyone with empathy and respect
  • Can-Do Attitude: a work mindset that embraces change and leads the way with flexibility, enthusiasm, and innovative solutions. Employees with Can-Do Attitude are VITAS brand ambassadors who understand that their work, behavior, and energy impact everyone with whom they come in contact

Behaviors that Make a Real Difference

At VITAS, these three traits are ingrained into our culture as healthcare professionals. They are bolstered by four VITAS Values that have inspired our company for more than 40 years.

They are also supported by the VITAS Employee Promise, five unifying factors—Purpose, Passion, People, Possibilities, and Presence—that motivate compassionate professionals to join VITAS and remain with us as we fulfill our mission to enhance the quality of life for patients and their families near the end of life.
