CHAP Accredited; We are Ready to Serve!

Emmanuel Hospice recently received CHAP accreditation recognizing us as an industry leader in quality, performance, and excellence.

CHAP (Community Health Accreditation Program) provides a non-biased third-party review to ensure a provider is not only compliant with current state and federal regulations and industry standards of practice, but demonstrates higher levels of performance, positioning it for growth and long term viability.

“The goal of Emmanuel Hospice is to treat the person instead of the disease, and focus on the family and caregivers, not just the individual.” said Sara Lowe, Executive Director of Emmanuel Hospice, “Our privilege is to support the goals of those we serve during what can be a very difficult time.”

Emmanuel Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach that includes expert medical care, pain-and-symptom management, and emotional and spiritual support. All care is expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes.

“Emmanuel Hospice isn’t a place. We customize our care to best meet your needs by bringing our services to the place you consider home, wherever that may be,” Said Lowe.  “It’s a philosophy of care that focuses on living…living as fully as possible, up until the end of life.”

Emmanuel Hospice is an interfaith collaboration of four local, nonprofit organizations with over 200 years of combined experience providing quality health care services in West Michigan.  St. Ann’s, Clark, Porter Hills, and Sunset Retirement have joined together to deliver the highest level of holistic care to those who have reached end of life.
