University Hospitals Hospice Offers Families Support and Comfort Through Quality End of Life Care

University Hospitals Hospice

With UH Hospice, you’re never alone. Our team attends to the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of the patient using an interdisciplinary approach to planning and delivering care.

University Hospitals Hospice provides specialized care and support for individuals who are terminally ill. Guided by the philosophy that dying is a normal part of life, the UH Hospice team provides care and services that assure comfort of the patient and enhance the ability and confidence of family members and others who are providing care.

UH Hospice offers patients and caregivers the option of continuing to receive that same high level of care and compassion by coordinating care with UH physicians and the many services offered by UH.

Quality Hospice Care at Home, Nursing Homes and Other Facilities

Empowered by hospice support, patients facing a serious and life-limiting illness can achieve the highest quality of life possible, surrounded and supported by family, friends and loved ones. Hospice services are available wherever the patient resides – in the home, in a hospital, in a skilled nursing or assisted living facility, or in a group home. UH Hospice is contracted with most area nursing facilities, and is available to patients in Cuyahoga County and surrounding communities in northeast Ohio.

The Vision and Goals of UH Hospice

We Honor Veterans Partner Level One

UH Hospice is a We Honor Veterans Partner Hospice

At UH Hospice, we believe healing is about caring. We recognize each person as an individual, with unique needs and goals. We treat patients with dignity and respect while supporting them and their families as they face life’s final journey. We believe both teaching and learning at end of life is a shared experience. We listen to patient and caregiver concerns and, by listening, we learn how best to provide the education and support needed. Understanding the hopes of our patients and their families brings clarity to our pathway for caring.

Focus on Quality of Life

The UH Hospice team attends to the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of the patient using an interdisciplinary approach to planning and delivering care. With quality of life as the primary focus, our highly trained professional staff, in collaboration with the patient, family and patient’s physician, develops and implements a plan of care that is unique to each patient situation.
