VITAS Healthcare (Business )

VITAS Healthcare, a pioneer in the hospice movement since 1978, is the nation’s leading provider of end-of-life care. Our name, derived from the Latin word for “lives,” symbolizes the VITAS mission: to preserve the quality of life for those who have a limited time to live.

Your VITAS hospice team members visit you wherever you call home - whether in a private home, nursing home, assisted living facility or long-term care facility - throughout 22 counties in and near the Greater San Antonio area, from Frio and Bandera to Williamson and Caldwell.

VITAS has hospice offices in San Antonio and San Marcos and the VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at Villa Rosa, and we provide hospice care wherever you need it.

Online and Virtual Assistance

At VITAS we care for patients with an interdisciplinary team comprising a nurse, physician, aide, social worker, and chaplain. Other clinical professionals, from a music therapist to a trained volunteer, may work with the team to help meet the emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and their family. Our teams design personalized care plans to ensure comfort, dignity, and quality of life.

Most of the time, hospice care is brought to the patient at home, since home is where most seriously ill people want to be: in familiar surroundings with familiar routines and familiar faces.
