VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at the Florida Medical Center
At the VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at Florida Medical Center, we take an individualized approach to every patient we care for. We’re here to support our patients and their loved ones through a difficult time.
Our inpatient unit at Florida Medical Center has an extraordinary staff that cares for some of VITAS’s most fragile patients, including ventilator patients from other hospitals who come to the VITAS unit when it is time for extubation. This unit has the resources necessary to ensure a peaceful transition.
This unit is where education and innovation take place as well. Medical students from schools with VITAS affiliations make rounds here, along with two VITAS hospice specialists. VITAS trains new staff from all over the country here as well.
Florida Medical Center serves residents from Sunrise, Plantation, Oakland Park, Lauderdale Lakes and Fort Lauderdale in Broward.
