VNA's Hospice of Philadelphia Opens Free-Standing Inpatient Unit

PHILADELPHIA, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Peaceful. Calm. Serene. These are the adjectives Hospice of Philadelphia considered when it developed its new free-standing inpatient hospice unit.

Hospice of Philadelphia is a service of The Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Philadelphia (VNA) and provides hospice care to patients in residential, inpatient and nursing home settings.

The inpatient unit has 14 fully furnished, private patient rooms. Each room includes private bath facilities and all are spacious enough to welcome visiting family and friends.

In consideration of visiting family members, the unit also includes a family-centered great room equipped with a flat screen TV and a peaceful indoor waterfall. Family members can also enjoy the use of a full kitchen and dining area as well as a "quiet room" when a family's privacy is needed.
