Hospice is as rewarding as it is challenging. Providing clinical, emotional and spiritual care to patients and their families at end of life is a privilege and we are looking for nurses interested in embracing the challenges and joy inherent to our work in the community.

EvergreenHealth Hospice focuses on providing the highest quality of life possible for our patients and our publicly reported patient satisfaction outcomes demonstrate our success and leadership in our field as the premier hospice agency. Collaboration is key to the best possible patient experience and our interdisciplinary teams are adept at balancing symptom management and all the varied needs of a family anticipating the loss of a loved one.

A core element of EvergreenHealth Hospice is our goal of continuous improvement in clinical quality and we actively encourage staff participation in process improvement projects and, most importantly, allow our staff the time to provide exceptional care for our patients. As a nurse, this means a lower caseloads and/or visit assignment compared to other hospice agencies in our area. Our size in both King and Snohomish counties also allows us to offer more compact territories for case managers.
