Compassion, Care and Comfort
In-Patient Hospice Care
The Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Excellence for In-Patient Hospice Care was designed to provide comforting, end-of-life care for both patients and their families.
Our dedicated and compassionate staff members are specifically trained for end-of-life issues. Our hospice team provides skilled nursing care, daily hospice physician visits, medical supplies and equipment, medication for pain and symptom control, social services, nutritional counseling, spiritual support and bereavement services.
Sleeping accommodations are available at the Tietz Center for family members who wish to stay with their loved ones 24 hours a day.
Acute palliative care is for patients who do not meet the criteria for in-patient hospice care but can still benefit from palliation of symptoms - reducing the severity of symptoms when there is no cure for the disease.
Our In-Patient Hospice Care Unit opened in 2000. Thousands of patients, ages 20 and up, have sought end-of-life care at Margaret Tietz.
