A Home Away from Home
When hospice patients need care beyond what can be provided at home, the VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at New Hope Medical Center is a home away from home.
Our multidisciplinary team—comprised of a hospice physician, nurses, social worker and chaplain—is skilled in the medical management of pain and complicated symptoms. The welcoming surroundings at our facility help to reduce stress and enhance our patients’ quality of life.
At VITAS, we listen and support diverse cultural and spiritual needs. We offer care that is sensitive to the unique needs of veterans. In the Atlanta area, VITAS has a 4-star rating from We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Features of Our Inpatient Hospice Unit in Duluth
The VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at New Hope Medical Center is a hospice house. We offer a quiet, soothing atmosphere that is as homelike as possible. Each of our 12 private suites has a bathroom and space for overnight guests. The decor is warm, much like the bedrooms in a private residence.
The family room, which includes a children's play area, is a comfortable place to gather, unwind or have a family discussion. The facility also features a laundry room, along with a quiet room, which is an ideal space for prayer or reflection.
At VITAS, we believe that the best therapy for hospice patients is the comfort they derive from their loved ones. The inpatient unit is open 24/7 for the convenience of family members and visitors. We can also accommodate guests who wish to spend the night.
We also know that pets are members of patients’ families and are very therapeutic. Pets are welcome to visit for short periods of time as long as they are on leashes and supervised by an adult. We can even arrange a visit from one of our VITAS Paw Pals®.
