When someone comes into the care of Hospice of Chattanooga, their personal physician can always remain as their attending physician. However, to back up your physician and help him or her in taking care of you, we have several great physicians who are specialists in hospice and palliative care. It is their job to communicate with your physicians to make sure you always receive the 5-Star care you deserve and expect.
