Care Choices

Mountain Valley Hospice and Palliative Care has been chosen by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to participate in an investigational study called the Medicare Care Choices Model.

Care Choices studies how the quality of life can improve when individuals with a serious illness have access to care focused on comfort as they continue to aggressively treat the illness with hope of a cure or extended life.

The Care Choices model focuses on clarifying the patient’s needs and helping with decision-making between the patient and family, his or her primary medical provider, and the Care Choices team.
