WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT PROGRESSIVE

  • “One of the things we do very, very well here is we respond immediately to our patients needs….Our nurses are also on call 24/7 and they can go see the patient even in the middle of the night…”

  • “I would like to recommend Progressive because they have been in business for a long time and they care about the patients and they care about their employees.”

  • “…we have a lot of patients that come back to us, that we have for different reasons, and we get them back as repeat patients and they come back to us because they have been satisfied with their care and we develop a good rapport with them.”

  • “We take patients whether they’re infant, pediatric to geriatric. And what’s awesome about Progressive is we have a bridge program to hospice, so when that time comes our patients are moved to hospice and are able to pass in their home pain free, anxiety free, with loved ones surrounded by them.”

  • “I like to help patients achieve their goals, get back to their prior levels of functions, and help patients recover… The thing that is special about Progressive is that patients are the top priority and our team members work together to help them achieve their goals.”

  • “What I find most special about Progressive Hospice is the people…everyone does such a wonderful job.”
