Our expectations are to deliver the highest quality of care while focusing on efficiency, compliance, and responsiveness. Through our efforts, mvhpc has maintained a regional presence in both north carolina and virginia, serving patients from a 16-county service area. Our success can be attributed to providing high quality care, promoting awareness and availability of services, expanding programs, and engaging in the faith community. Please see schedule o for a continuation of program service accomplishments. Fostering new and existing relationships with referral sources, nursing homes, residential facilities, senior centers and hospitals is a high priority for mvhpc to remain viable in the ever increasing competitive market of hospice providers. In fy 2015, mvhpc served 1,645 hospice patients and their families with an average daily census of 286. Patients are served at home, in long term care facilities, hospitals, in our woltz hospice home or wherever they may reside. In addition to hospice services, mvhpc provided services to patients and families through its non-medical transitions program and through a consultative palliative care program. In order to meet the needs of its specialty populations mvhpc offers hospice and palliative care services for pediatric patients through a kids path program; veterans through its veterans program; and a pet peace of mind program to ensure pets are cared for when a loved one is dying and beyond. Mvhpc is continually looking for new and innovative opportunities to meet the needs of our population at the end of life and sustain our programs. In july 2015, mvhpc was selected to participate in the new and innovative medicare care choices model (mccm) where hospice-eligible patients that are seeking curative care can receive the support of the hospice interdisciplinary team.
