Medicare Audit Forces San Diego Hospice To Close

San Diego Hospice, which has been one of the country’s leading end-of-life care providers for more than 30 years, is closing its doors. The organization’s announcement yesterday came after drastic downsizing, layoffs and finally a bankruptcy filing, all in response to an ongoing federal investigation into patient eligibility. Kathleen Pacurar, president and chief executive officer of San Diego Hospice, said the pressure and uncertainty of an ongoing federal audit made the closing inevitable.
