Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services
For the 3rd year in a row, Aspirus has been named by IBM Watson Health as one of the Nation’s Top 15 Health Systems, based on analysis of overall organizational performance and quality. We are a system of 10 hospitals and more than 50 clinics that spans over 25,000 square miles throughout Central Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Currently, over 500 providers are located throughout the system and have the opportunity to affect approximately 770,000 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.
