VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at the Ft. Lauderdale Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
At the VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at Ft. Lauderdale Nursing & Rehabilitation, 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.
This VITAS inpatient unit is located in a nursing home, giving it a more homelike feel than units housed in hospital wings. Being on the first floor adds to its welcoming atmosphere. The VITAS staff of professionals has extensive hospice experience. Other specialists provide music, respiratory and pet therapy; there are also office and patient-care volunteers at work in the unit.
Fourteen semi-private rooms serve patients from northeast Broward County, including terminally ill patients from neighboring Holy Cross Hospital.
In addition to caring for hospice patients too sick to remain at home, the unit at Ft. Lauderdale Health & Rehabilitation is a temporary home to patients needing respite care for 1–5 days when the family caregiver must be away or needs a break of more than a few hours from home patient care.
