Hospice Maui provides quality, compassionate hospice care to maximize the comfort and dignity of those in their last months and weeks of life, wherever they call home. Highly trained and experienced professionals, including an all-RN hospice nursing staff, care for the patient and support the caregivers, and anticipate and address the complex physical, emotional, and spiritual issues that can arise.

Hospice Maui Hale
Our biggest project was the construction of our Hospice Maui Hale. Hospice Maui Hale allows seriously ill persons, for whom home hospice care is not an option, to pass their final days or weeks with hospice care in a place other than a hospital or nursing home. Our 5-bedroom facility opened in the beginning of December 2016.
