Island Hospice recently received approval to begin operations on Maui. As one of Hawaii’s largest nonprofit providers of hospice care and with a growing location on Oahu, Island Hospice says it’s ready to provide Maui with compassionate and capable end-of-life care.
With a mission of providing their patients with the highest quality care, Island Hospice seeks to serve the “physical, emotional and spiritual needs of their terminally-ill patients,” states at July 31 press release from the company. “We realize the immediate need to care for those who cannot have care otherwise, whether due to family or financial resources,” said Dr. Michael Duick, CEO of Island Hospice, in that news release. “That is why we are determined to open a beautiful hospice home in central Maui as quickly as possible. The addition of an inpatient hospice unit will without doubt improve health care on Maui.”
Hiring for hospice staff will begin in the fall, with job fairs starting soon. Another firm, Hospice Maui, has operated here for the last 30 years.
