Founded in 2004, Hospice Associates serves patients facing terminal conditions and abbreviated life expectancies. Sixteen years in, it is considered a leader in its field. The Hospice Associates team compassionately and effectively manages the pain and discomfort of frail, elderly, home-bound people suffering with cancer, dementia, stroke, and heart and respiratory failure in their place of residence or inpatient setting.
“Our team has collectively many years of experience caring for people with terminal illnesses and is vertically integrated to offer RN, palliative-certified NP, or MD-level professional care on demand and on premises,” says Dr. Ricardo Febry, Owner and Chief Medical Officer. “We bring knowledge, compassion, and accessibility 24/7 for our patients, their relatives and caregivers,” he says.
A physician-led, guided, and managed hospice service, Hospice Associates offers the benefit of Dr. Febry’s direct involvement in patient care plans—he is always in communication with hospice staff, patients, and family members for consultations, even making house calls in difficult cases. Hospice Associates is the only Southshore hospice agency accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC).
