Patient Evaluation Service

As your patient makes the transition from curative to palliative care, Hospice of Santa Cruz County can help with our pre-admission evaluation service.

A member of our staff is available to meet with patients who you believe are appropriate for hospice services or who could benefit from our Transitions program. We can evaluate and provide education to your patients in the comfort of their home, in the hospital or skilled nursing facility, or in your medical office. There is no fee for this service.

If, during the evaluation, your patient chooses hospice care and you approve of this decision, admission to the hospice program can begin as soon as possible.

For more information, or to arrange for an evaluation, please contact the Hospice of Santa Cruz County Admissions Department at (831)430-3000.
