CC Young announced the expansion of its hospice program to include a 16-bed general inpatient (GIP) hospice unit which is opening in September. With GIP services, hospice patients and their families will find comfort in the extra layers of clinical, psychosocial, and spiritual support in this high-acuity, comfort-focused setting. CC Young has assembled an expert interdisciplinary team to care for patients whose symptoms can no longer be managed at home, who have medically complex needs, or who have experienced a sudden decline and need round-the-clock care.
The CC Young hospice inpatient unit is located on the campus of CC Young in The Vista, the state-of-the-art skilled nursing and assisted living building which opened late 2019 with final resident moves completed in February 2020. Each private room has its own bathroom, television, fully reclining chair, and fully adjustable bed. The inpatient wing is a serene, tranquil oasis with multiple family gathering areas, a special area for small children, private conference rooms, outdoor garden and even a meditation chapel on The Vista’s 2nd floor. Family and friends can visit 24/7 in accordance with current health guidelines and safety protocols from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Families may even utilize overnight accommodations to remain by their loved one’s side during this crucial time.
The CC Young Hospice program continues to serve and support patients at home as well as other settings outside of the CC Young Campus. All hospice eligible patients are welcome admissions from local hospitals, assisted living and long term care communities, physicians’ offices and other providers on a 24/7 referrals and admissions basis.
