Hospice

Hospice isn’t about dying. It’s about living with comfort and dignity. It’s about providing patients — and their loved ones — with the highest quality of life for whatever time remains. 

At Vidant Health, we believe that no family should have to face terminal illness or the death of a loved one alone. Our Vidant Health Hospice team provides support for patients and families of patients with a limited life expectancy. Using a team approach, we work to meet the special physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients and their families. 

We’re focused on caring, not curing. And we treat the individual, not the disease. Our goal is to help patients live their final days with dignity and as free of pain as possible.  

Hospice care takes place in the patient’s home as often as possible. For hospice patients requiring a higher level of care, Vidant Health offers The Service League of Greenville Inpatient Hospice in Greenville. Inpatient hospice care can also be provided at any of our Vidant Health hospitals in coordination with your hospice case manager.

Why Vidant?

  • We have a wide coverage area. Vidant Home Health and Hospice provides hospice services in 19 counties of eastern North Carolina with hospice offices in Greenville, Kenansville and Ahoskie and an Inpatient Hospice facility located in Greenville. Registered nurses are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays.
  • All the services you needed at this stage of life are here. We offer skilled nursing, social workers, respite care, bereavement care, palliative care, psychiatric nursing, dietary services, pastoral support, telehomecare and physical, occupational and speech therapy.
  • Taking care of a patient's family is a priority too. The Hospice team works with primary caregivers to make sure their needs are taken care of too. When a patient passes away, our bereavement team maintains contact with the family for the next 13 months and provides one-on-one counseling as needed.
