Enhanced hospice care for Jewish families

Hospice of the Valley has received a prestigious national certification for its long history of providing culturally sensitive care to Jewish families in our community. The National Institute for Jewish Hospice commended the not-for-profit agency for educating staff about Jewish culture, values and traditions; integrating Jewish medical ethics into care; and teaching the unique aspects of Jewish grief and mourning.

 “We are so proud of our tailored care to best meet individual needs — from the rabbis we have on staff to our Shabbat Blessings program to the Kosher meals we provide to our patients in our inpatient units,” said Rachel Behrendt, senior vice president of operations for Arizona’s largest provider of end-of-life care. “This certification adds to the confidence our Jewish community has that Hospice of the Valley is committed to enhancing their hospice journey.”
