When you or someone you love is diagnosed with a terminal illness, you are faced with many difficult decisions. Central Texas Medical Center Hospice is here to help.
CTMC Hospice recognizes death as the final stage of life and is devoted to serving patients and families through compassionate, supportive and holistic care. We believe maintaining respect for dignity and individuality is essential to enhancing life. Our medical teams provide care in the comfort and familiarity of you or your loved one's own home (or nursing home), without invasive treatment or repeated trips to the hospital.
If you or someone you love is considering the loving choice of hospice care, please contact our office at 512-754-6159 so we can help you make an informed choice.
Doctor visits are provided to the patient wherever they live by the consulting physician. This visit enables the patient to remain comfortable in their home.
