Hospice care

  • Hospice care is available for anyone with a terminal illness when his or her primary care provider believes they have six months or less to live.

    Hospice focuses on your comfort and quality of life.

    Hospice keeps you comfortable while "nature takes its course."

  • Availability

    Allina Health Hospice serves patients living in our service area, which includes 33 Minnesota counties and 3 Wisconsin counties. We care for patients wherever they call home, including assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities, group homes and residential hospice facilities.

    Payment and insurance

    Hospice care is covered by most insurers, including Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers. Private pay options are also available.

    Our admission staff can help evaluate your coverage. Call us at 651-635-9173 or 1-800-261-0879.

    It is our policy to never refuse service to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay.
