Providence Health Services in Seattle has a terribly run billing department. My mother passed away in October and I received a bill April 23 for over over $4000. They say it s what my insurance did not cover but we re not forthright with us at Admit. Communications with the billing coordinator has been sparse and inadequate. I replied to their initial letter and it took two months to receive a reply. They finally wrote back September 22nd stating the bill was final. To comment on the actual service: Hospice was not with my mother when she died. They did not call me to tell me it was getting close. I would not recommend this organization.

I don t want to go into a lot of detail, but, was sorely disappointed in care my mother has received from this agency, it s as if a dying 98 year old woman did not deserve the time and care she so rightly deserves. After all she is an old lady and doesn t complain much. after 6 months we switched hospices today. good luck and remember to advocate for your loved one.

An incredible group that does very difficult work. They made sure my dad had pain control and he was comfortable, helped with other medical issues, served as a liaison between the doctors and my dad, took our 3am phone calls when we were scared and didn t know what to do. They got us a hospital bed, walker and wheelchair. More than anything, they weren t patronizing or placating towards my father. They were professional, kind, and respectful. He was independent and stubborn and they let him remain that way while making sure he got the care he needed. I can t thank Providence Hospice enough for helping my dad die with dignity.

I won t go into tremendous detail, as it appears another poster had an interestingly similar experience to ours where a dear family member was concerned. For whatever reason, that person s review was randomly chosen to be filtered from the Yelp database, and as a result, not included in Providence s rating score. Assuming I ll be joining those ranks, I ll refrain from being verbose.
What I will say, is this organization did not deliver what our family felt was an appropriate level of service, at least, not according to what our physician or the nursing staff at UW assured us. Our home visit nurse seemed competent enough, but inconsistent in her visits. Visits were rescheduled often, medications were not called into the pharmacy in a timely manner. And like the other poster (whose review has curiously been selected to remain filtered out by Yelp) often, medications were not ready when promised.
At the end of our loved ones life, we too met with similar circumstances when calling Providence to report their passing. Stunned at the lack of compassion on the end of the phone, my brother said it was as if he had called for a taxi. Cold and impersonal. I actually received a kinder ear when making changes at the bank.
In consideration of the level of service received, we would not recommend this provider for hospice services, and will certainly be informing others of our experience. Perhaps the nurse patient volume is too high. I have no idea. What I do know, is that during our time of need, we felt there was a lack of responsiveness and disorganization.
And please. No response is requested or desired from the staff of Providence. In some cases, there is something to be said about too little too late .

This non-profit organization provides sensitive, caring, support to others who are grieving a deaths in the family, as well as hospice to those in need. Located in a nondescript concrete building (that also houses a massage school) in the Cascadia District close to REI. The small offices, however, off to one side on the first level provide quiet, intimate space.
A member of my family passed away in mid February, and I had no one really to turn to until I found them. And they asked for nothing in return–for the 6-week support group–than to share my heart with others who–as all of us eventually will have to–are grieving a deep personal loss.
Chapeau bas a eux.

I loved this business. The service was courteous, professional, and the experience was overall a pleasant one.
Fantastic service! Wouldn’t hesitate to come back again. The only reason I’m not giving this a 5 star rating is because it was a bit expensive.
There are a few times in life when a meal is so expertly crafted and planned that it is nothing short of genius. Last night, I had one of those meals – the Mahi Mahi.

The dish was excellently prepared. Grilled, juicy, and fresh without a hint of fishiness. A glaze of tangerine sauce brought a hint of tart sweetness. The fish was placed on a mound of sweet plantain rice. The combination of the fish and rice alone was to die for!
However, as only expert chefs can achieve, additional garnishes provided even bolder, beautiful tastes. Pickled onions topping the fish made for an even finer taste experience, while green beans hidden under the fish added freshness and completed each bite
