VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at Methodist Dallas Medical Center

1441 N. Beckley Ave.

Schenkel Tower, 5th Floor

Dallas, TX 75203

Coming soon: This inpatient unit is expected to open in spring 2019.

When hospice patients need care beyond what can be managed at home, the VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at Methodist Dallas Medical Center 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.
