When hospice patients need care beyond what can be managed at home, the VITAS Inpatient Hospice Center at Rockledge is a home-like setting where patients can receive the individualized, around the clock care they need. Our goal is to help patients return to their home as quickly as possible, where we will continue to provide support.

Our compassionate and professional healthcare providers staff the hospice unit 24/7 to ensure pain and other symptoms are well managed in collaboration with the patient's personal physician.
