Inpatient Units

The Casa de la Luz Inpatient Units are used as short-term alternatives when symptoms, such as pain, agitation, nausea, etc. cannot be managed in the home setting. Providing on-site, 24-hour, specialized medical expertise together with emotional and spiritual care, the goal of the Inpatient Units is to control the symptoms so you can return home and be supported by the hospice home care team. Admission is determined by the hospice physician in consultation with you, your family and hospice team.
