Hospice Suite at Addison Gilbert Hospital

 

The goal of the Hospice Suite is to achieve the best quality of life for patients and their families by providing care that affirms life and regards dying as a natural process. 

The Hospice Suite at Addison Gilbert Hospital provides supportive and palliative care for patients in the last phases of incurable disease, so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. Palliative care neither hastens nor prolongs death. It provides relief of pain and other distressing symptoms. It integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of care and offers a support system to help families cope during their loved one's illness. 

The Hospice Suite at Addison Gilbert Hospital is located on Steele I. The Suite includes two private one-bed patient rooms with accommodations in each where family members can sleep. There is also a family room with kitchen and sitting area. If more than two hospice patients are admitted, accommodations are made in medical-surgical private rooms for additional hospice patients. 

Initiate a Hospice Consult 

Nurses or physicians may initiate a hospice referral. One of our hospice affiliates will contact the primary physician to discuss a plan for care and comfort, and to verify hospice coverage by the patient's insurance carrier.
