United Hospice Service
Since 1983, United Hospice Service, a non-profit hospice program based in Marlette, Michigan, has been working to serve our communities by providing expert hospice care to our family, friends, and neighbors. What started as a group of caring volunteers that served a couple of patients at a time, has grown to serve over 200 patients per year.
United Hospice Service specializes in care during the last stage of life that allows patients to truly live until they die—without the fear of dying in pain, dying alone, or losing control. When a disease or illness cannot be cured, our goal is to treat and control symptoms such as pain or nausea.
We are a team of professionally trained health care providers and specially trained volunteers focused on putting our patients first. We work in partnership with you and your family, serving as your advocate, to ensure that your end-of-life decisions are followed.
