Why Mercy Hospice?

Life-limiting illness does not have to be faced alone. Both patients and families experience unique challenges and stresses. The dedicated staff members at Mercy Hospice combine the expertise you need with the compassion you deserve at this difficult time.

Mercy Hospice is Medicare certified and accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), the leading health care accrediting body in the world. JCAHO sets strict standards of care, which must be met in order to achieve accreditation. All areas of the hospice program are evaluated during the accreditation process including successful pain control, infection control, appropriate staffing, staff training and family education.

Whether at home, in a nursing home/assisted living center or at the Mercy Hospice – Johnston facility, you can rest assured you and your family will receive the best quality hospice care possible.
