The word ‘Caris’ comes from an ancient Greek word meaning ‘grace’. The last days of life are a sacred time, and we feel strongly that grace should be provided when and where it is needed most.
Caris believes in providing compassionate care to each and every patient that we serve.
Since Caris was founded in 2003, we have touched more than 20,500 lives. This has only been possible through our strong commitment to our patients and families, and to our healthcare partners.
Caris’ Mission is to be the leader in hospice care, and our Values of compassion, accountability, respect, integrity, and service ensure that we are able to achieve Excellence for our patients and families.
“You matter because you are you and you matter until the last moment of your life. We will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”
— Cicely Saunders, Founder of the Modern Hospice Movement
