Location and Services in Ohio

VITAS Healthcare has proudly served patients in Ohio since opening our first office here in 1993. Today, we provide tailored hospice and palliative services for patients in and around central and southwest Ohio, in the areas of Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati.

Our Ohio patients tell us where they would prefer to receive care, and we meet them at the bedside with Commitment, Compassion, and Can-Do Attitude — the VITAS Difference. In addition to regular visits and consultations with clinical staff, patients and their families in Ohio have access to psychosocial support and help with end-of-life planning through a VITAS social worker, as well as spiritual counseling through a VITAS chaplain.

We also offer various complementary therapies and modalities to address a full range of patient and family needs. We’re also proud to serve those who have served our country through our participation in the We Honor Veterans initiative.
