Hospice of Hilo is changing its name in January 2018 to Hawai’i Care Choices to better reflect the broader scope of services they deliver providing a continuum of care for people who are seriously ill and entering their final months of life.
The services include palliative care, hospice care, and bereavement services, as well as non-hospice services they may develop in the future.
“Having hospice in its overall brand name was limiting, no longer accurate, and at times even a barrier to service referral and acceptance by our community. Hospice will always be at our core, but meeting community need means adding services that go beyond hospice care.”
Hospice of Hilo will remain the name on accreditation, Medicaid/Medicare certifications, and insurance certificates.
