ProMedica/Heartland Hospice-Eau Claire

We believe that our mission is to enrich lives. That begins with every life we encounter : our employees, our patients and those who love and care for them, the communities in which we operate, our stake holders and those who are yet to become our customers.

ProMedica/Heartland Hospice Eau Claire is seeking volunteers to help support patients and their family members during a difficult time . Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide comfort care as well as spiritual and emotional support for terminally ill patients and their families.
