Unlicensed Hospice Provider in Wisconsin

This past week I read an article stating that St. Jude Hospice (not affiliated with the hospital), a for-profit hospice company based in Iowa, was notified by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to stop stating on its website that is serves the Madison area. Currently, St. Jude does not have a conditional license to operate in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has notified St. Jude Hospice that it cannot say it has a hospice or is operating a hospice in a particular county until it actually has a probationary Wisconsin license, department spokeswoman Stephanie Smiley said Friday.
