Hospice care focuses on comforting, not curing, a patient, and ideally that patient would stay in their home and receive that care, but for many families in the Rio Grande Valley that isn’t an option. This is why the DHR Health Hospice Hospital is proud to provide inpatient hospice and palliative care with around the clock assistance from our highly qualified staff.
