Center for Acute Hospice Care

Comfort care is often provided in our patients’ homes, but sometimes additional support is needed. Our Center for Acute Hospice Care, which is located at UVA’s Transitional Care Hospital in Northridge Medical Park on Ivy Road in Charlottesville, provides short-term care for patients with acute symptoms that are better managed in a hospital environment.

Most patients will never need this level of care, but Hospice of the Piedmont is proud to provide this unique center to those who do. This one-of-a-kind ten-bed unit, staffed by Hospice of the Piedmont staff, expands our services to support our most vulnerable clients who require acute in-patient nursing care. Our professional team of nurses, social workers, aides, chaplains, physicians, and trained volunteers at the Center for Acute Hospice Care delivers advanced symptom management, aggressive comfort care, and comprehensive end-of-life treatments and therapies to patients with life-limiting illnesses.

An initial evaluation by our clinical services team ensures these patients are receiving care in the most convenient and suitable location. Room and board charges may apply depending on the patient’s level of care, but because of the generous support of our community, no one will be turned away due to inability to pay.
