Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services
For the 2nd year in a row, Aspirus was recognized by IBM Watson Health as a Top 15 Health System in its annual study identifying the top-performing health systems in the country. We are a system of 10 hospitals and more than 50 clinics that spans over 25,000 square miles throughout Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Currently, over 585 providers are located throughout the system and have the opportunity to affect approximately 604,000 lives.
Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services partners with physicians, churches and local community groups to provide compassionate care for people in their homes, in the hospital and in other living facilities.
Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services offers hospice, palliative and grief care. When active treatment is no longer the focus of care for an illness, hospice care concentrates on relieving symptoms and supporting patients and their families. Hospice patients generally have a life expectancy measured in months rather than years. Although hospice cannot add days to a person's life, it most certainly can add life to their days.
Aspirus Hospice House is a place of comfort and companionship in Wausau for patients with end-stage illnesses who choose an alternative to home. It offers a compassionate and safe environment in a home-like setting.
