Iowa City Hospice

Accessing Iowa City Hospice’s Care

Anyone can make a referral to Iowa City Hospice. Patients and families are encouraged to call Iowa City Hospice directly – whether or not they have a physician referral – to seek advice and information at any time during their illness.

If it appears hospice care would be beneficial, Iowa City Hospice’s staff will work closely with the appropriate people to help facilitate a referral and admission to our program. Meetings to discuss each patient’s unique needs can be arranged at a time and place that is convenient for family.
