What Makes VNA Hospice Different

 

Texas’ first and most trusted hospice provider

As Texas’ first and most trusted hospice provider, VNA Hospice Care focuses on living life to its fullest and treating our patients and families with the dignity and respect they deserve. Terminally ill patients often feel like they are losing control. VNA helps give patients back the control by providing the necessary freedom to spend their final days as they wish in a comfortable, pain-free, and loving environment. As a nonprofit health care organization, our bottom line is providing compassionate, professional care for our patients and their families.

The Community Health Accreditation Partner, or CHAP, accredits health care organizations that demonstrate the highest quality of care as a strategic business priority. All hospice organizations are required to meet state and federal regulations in order to operate. However, obtaining CHAP accreditation requires meeting higher standards of care and going above and beyond Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines. VNA has been CHAP accredited since 2010, ensuring VNA is leading the provision of care in our community rather than simply participating in it. VNA was recently audited by CHAP (standard for all CHAP-accredited agencies) and was found to have no deficiencies. VNA’s goal is to provide excellent, patient-centered care meeting the needs and exceeding the expectations of patients and their families. Our CHAP accreditation reinforces our commitment to excellence for all patients and our quality delivery of care.

There are some great resources to help you make an informed decision when choosing a hospice agency.  Hospice Compare is a CMS-sponsored website created to help consumers find Medicare-certified hospices and compare their patient and family satisfaction results as well as their adherence to comprehensive assessment measures.
