Center for Acute Hospice Care
Hospice of the Piedmont
Who We Are
This ten-bed unit, a collaboration with UVA Health System, opened in January 2016. The inpatient unit is designed for qualified patients who need advanced symptom management and aggressive comfort care at the end of life.
Patients at the Center benefit from not only pain management and comfort care, but also the spiritual, social and emotional support that are the hallmarks of hospice care. This facility is staffed with Hospice of the Piedmont nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, chaplains and volunteers. UVA Palliative Care physicians and nurse practitioners are available to provide specialized care to Center patients
