I'm wondering if you meant, is hospice care compassionate? The idea of hospice is to provide specialized medical care for someone who is near the end of life, and their family--and usually patients and families find that hospice care is very compassionate--at its best hospice addresses all the aspects of dying.

In brief: Compassionate
Would probably be the better word.
Practitioners are passionate about their work. So, i'd say, yes, hospice is compassionate care. To relieve suffering. Humane, dignified treatment.

In brief: Compassionate care.
Hospice is meant for those who seemingly at the end of life, although that end can still be many months away.
The emphasis of hospice care is not trying to save the life, but to give comfort to the individual as their death approaches.
