Our Clinical Team
When you refer your patient to Hospice of Chattanooga, you can trust us to surround that patient with a highly skilled team of hospice professionals. The team will work together, and certainly with you if you wish, to develop a care plan for your patient.
Every patient situation is unique, so we start with your diagnosis and referral as we meet with the patient and caregiver(s) to hear their desires. Once everyone is on the same page, we craft a care plan that is very specific in addressing the stated goal of the patient and family.
Remember, any physician who wishes to remain the attending is greatly appreciated. Our physicians work with you to make sure that your connection to your physician remains intact.
