SOMC Hospice Facility & Directions
The SOMC Hospice Center provides a home away from home for terminally ill patients who need inpatient care.
What is Hospice?
Hospice is a medically directed supportive service for patients with a life limiting illness and their families. The goal is to provide a continuation of care, which offers patients choices for enhancing the opportunities for completing their lives with dignity, purpose and peace.
We develop a coordinated, individualized program of care for each patient and family by providing physical, emotional, social and spiritual support.
Who is eligible for hospice care?
Hospice is for patients who have a life-limiting illness in advanced stages and need supportive treatment and care.
How is a referral to Hospice made?
Referrals to SOMC Hospice may be initiated by anyone, including the patient, family or friends. A phone call to the Hospice office begins the process.
Services are paid for through a combination of insurance reimbursements and private funding.
Healing Hearts provides children with the opportunity to meet in a safe and accepting environment where they can share their experiences with other children who have lost a loved one.
We strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for SOMC Hospice patients and their families.
