Sometimes, for brief periods of time, hospice patients may require care beyond what can be comfortably provided at home. At the VITAS Inpatient Unit at Regent Care Center of The Woodlands, our specialized team provides the necessary level of care to stabilize symptoms, so patients can return to the familiarity of their own homes and routines as quickly as possible.

Should your loved one require a stay at the inpatient unit, you’ll be glad to know that we’ve created a restful, homelike environment where medical crises can be managed efficiently and compassionately.
