When hospice patients in Cincinnati need care beyond what can be managed at home, VITAS offers inpatient hospice care at the Drake Center. We offer 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 continue to provide support.

Inpatient hospice care in Cincinnati

VITAS has special arrangements with Cincinnati hospitals and other facilities where patients may receive necessary and appropriate inpatient hospice care to address needs that cannot be safely managed at home.

We are especially proud of our partnership with UC Health. As part of our commitment to offering the full spectrum of hospice care to our patients throughout Southwest Ohio, we have established a dedicated inpatient hospice unit on 5 West in UC’s Drake Center in central Cincinnati.

Here, our patients who require care that cannot be managed at home can stay in a home-like setting, receiving high-quality care around the clock; family and friends are welcome at any time, day or night, with no restrictions on visitation. Special features include:

  • 14 private rooms with overnight guest accommodations
  • Flat-screen TVs and telephones in rooms, with available computers
  • Comfortable common family room and private quiet area
  • Kitchen facilities as well as cafeteria service
  • Free parking

Truly a hospice house, The Drake Center ensures a quiet, comfortable stay until the patient is stable and can return home.
