Nurse Review
Mervel G., Treasure Coast, FL

Words can’t describe my team because we are so cohesive. We work so well together. I’ll be going on vacation, I can walk away and know that my patients are going to be well taken care of because my team members, they got your back.

Business Development Review
Katie C., Philadelphia

The camaraderie is great, the relationships and friendships I’ve made from people who have been here, come and gone, still continue. But it’s really the fact that we have such great leadership here. You know you’re taking care of patients that no other hospice can. They’re very complex, family dynamics, and we never say “no.” VITAS never says “no” to those types of patients, if they’re eligible and appropriate.

Administrative/Clerical Review
Eva Z., Miami

In the over 35 years that I’ve been with VITAS, the managers that I’ve had were always great managers. They have always been available for me and the team, no matter what our disciplinary is. We get together and we talk about patients. We talk about staff and we are here for each other. We’re always here for each other.

Chaplain Review
Ever M., Sacramento, CA

I am so grateful that here at VITAS, different than other places that I’ve been before, all of our staff, starting from our administrators to our nurses to our social workers, everyone — everyone — has only one goal, and that goal is to love, to care for other people.
