SSM Health at Home has three per diem hospice physicians and one physician with a dedicated time between the two St. Louis hospice branches. The hospice providers serve in the daily operational needs and provide for after-hours coverage. SSM inpatient units are requesting more assistance and collaboration in the medical care of patients at end-of-life, it is difficult not to have full-time coverage in the Medical Directorship role. The addition of a Medical Director for hospice and palliative care is needed to join the teams in St. Louis.
