The Extensions of Care
Peterson Hospice has the primary goal to meet the patient's every need. Then, we extend to surround the family at all times throughout that need. Simultaneously we branch out into the community to continue the support. That's what Peterson's Hospice is all about. Peterson Hospice goes far beyond what is required or expected. We lead with heart from the start! Here are a few additional services under the Hospice umbrella: Hospice
