The hospice medical director typically assumes overall responsibility for the medical management of all patients in the hospice program. A patient’s primary provider may continue to provide medical care for the patient should the patient so desire. When the patient’s primary physician remains involved, the medical director serves in an advisory/consultative role to the primary physician. The Hospice of Murray County medical director, Dr. Lang, is highly educated in hospice care and quickly and efficiently responds to the needs of hospice patients.
