Valor HospiceCare & The Valor Institute for Palliative Medicine is about exemplary care by extraordinary associates and volunteers. And based on our service evaluations and feedback, a level of care and patient attention usually not seen in health care.
Led by our medical team, our Core Values and "Philosophy of Care" are focused on our innovative, comprehensive and integrated approach of changing and enhancing the way hospice and comfort care (as known as palliative care) is organized, planned and delivered in our markets. As an academic-based organization, we are improving end of life care, reducing costs to the healthcare system and expanding access to hospice and palliative care in the markets we serve.

The Valor team provides care wherever the patient is best cared for and comfortable. Services are offered anywhere a patient lives -- in private homes, nursing homes, independent living centers, assisted living and/or long-term care facilities and in the hospital for authorized medical emergencies.
