Hospice Physician

They, along with their team, are involved in the development of individualized plans of care. Care plans are discussed at weekly meetings, where changes in condition and medications will be discussed. A patient may keep their primary care physician as their doctor, or they may transfer sole care over to the hospice medical director if they desire.

Registered Nurses

St. Gabriel’s experienced RN’s provide compassionate symptom management as well as personalized care to each patient. A nurse will visit based on the care plan set forth by the clinical team and agreed upon by the family. Each patient is assigned an RN to manage their care Monday through Friday.
