"During my medical career, I have seen so many patients with terminal illness not understand or even have hospice care presented as an option. Sometimes they have their final days of life in the hospital when it was truly not what they had wanted. I am passionate about hospice because I want everyone to be aware of these wonderful services."
— Dr. Reichmuth
Dr. Heather Fago, M.D.
Associate Medical Director
Dr. Fago—who has led Tabitha’s hospice teams in the York and Grand Island areas since 2008— works with clients, their families and physicians to develop customized care plans and provide ongoing review of the hospice program in Tabitha’s central and west regions. She is board certified in family medicine.

I love working with the team to provide end-of-life care to our clients. I like that we can help make their journey a peaceful one—both for them and their loved ones.

Associate Medical Director
Board certified in internal medicine and specializing in nephrology, Dr. Marple serves Tabitha’s clients in Lincoln and the surrounding areas.

The trend in healthcare is a corporate business model where profits trump patients. But not at Tabitha. Our hospice program has a patient-centered philosophy where care—for clients and their loved ones—comes first, and those care decisions are made here within their own communities.
