Hospice

Through their hospice care program, the Alliance Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice knows how to meet the needs of terminally-ill patients and their family members.

We Can Help

Hospice provides comfort, care and compassion for those who are terminally ill.

Alliance Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice is a non-profit organization that recognizes that both the patient and their families are involved in this difficult decision of choosing hospice care.

This is completed by delivering comprehensive services that meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and their loved ones.

Shape up your Sinuses

April 16, 2014

Dr. David Kanagy, an otolaryngologist with the Alliance Community Medical Foundation, is offering sinus sufferers some relief using an in-office balloon sinuplasty procedure. In the last year, Kanagy became one of the only doctors in a six-county area to begin doing the procedure in the office under local anesthesia, which means no sedation, no IV, no gowns, and no visit to the hospital's surgical department.
