How can a General Manager not know? The VITAS program was not the first Hospice in the country. It is not the oldest. The VITAS program was started in Florida as "Hospice Care" by a nurse and a chaplain, and the there were hospices programs already around the country. The Connecticut Hospice in Bradford, CT. is he oldest. The Connecticut Hospice inaugurated hospice care in America in 1974. Since then, it has been the beacon and teacher of the growing hospice movement throughout the nation, and beyond.

I have worked for Vitas for ten years, and it is not a good company to work for any more. I guess we have new owners. I am a CC LPN and we barely have pts .and we have to use PTO time to make up hours. They raised our insurance out of pocket cost to $8,500.00 yearly that has to be paid before UHI pays their 80%, so basically we have no insurance. They will not let us collect unemployment insurance,because they say there is work in other programs, but it's not. And the strange thing is no one ,from Corp. on down, seems to care that we can't pay our rent or buy food,and that's just the essential things needed just to live. I need to find another job ,ASAP.
