Providing Compassionate Care in the Mountains For Locals By Locals

Bear Valley Hospice is the first and only local hospice care provider in the Big Bear Valley. We serve local residents who are nearing the end of life with dignity, respect, and community conscious care. As a small company with locally based staff, we are able to serve patients and families more efficiently and effectively than larger, non-local companies. Our patients are our family, friends, and neighbors and we pride ourselves on providing exceptional care to our community.

Our Quality of Care

Quality Measure Info.png


Quality measures are calculated using the Hospice Item Set (HIS), Medicare claims data, and the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) Hospice Survey. The Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP) currently uses these three data sources to calculate performance on QMs.​The Hospice Care Index (HCI) captures care processes occurring throughout the hospice stay, between admission and discharge. The HCI is a single measure comprising ten indicators calculated from Medicare claims data.
