Hospice of Northwest Ohio has two state-of-the-art Hospice Centers, specifically designed to address the end-of-life needs of patients and families. One is located in Perrysburg Township at 30000 East River Road, about halfway between Perrysburg and Rossford. The other is located in Toledo at 800 South Detroit Avenue, north of Arlington, next to Bowsher High School. Both provide a peaceful, home-like atmosphere where patients and families can spend quality time together.

High Staffing Levels
The staff-to-patient ratio at the Hospice Centers is much higher than in other health care settings. Patients’ needs are met immediately by nurses, aides, social workers and other caregivers who are passionate about the work they do. Our own staff of physicians – whose careers are fully dedicated to the specialty of end-of-life care – round with patients, oversee their care and are readily available to address patients’ changing needs.
All patient rooms are private, with patients encouraged to bring personal items that will make their rooms as home-like as possible. Families have visiting privileges 24 hours a day; children are always welcome and pets may visit, also. Each center features many amenities, including two large family rooms that are comfortably furnished and equipped with fireplaces and kitchenettes. Visitors can enjoy food brought from home or eat, conveniently, in the centers' dining rooms. Family gatherings are encouraged, with holidays, birthdays, baptisms and even weddings being celebrated at the hospice centers.
Every patient room in both centers provides an excellent "view from the pillow." At the Perrysburg Center, which opened in 1995, there are wonderful gardens, bountiful wildlife, a stocked fishing pond, a walkway through the grounds, a small play area for young children and a grand piano in the music room which help provide a pleasant, relaxed setting for patients and visitors, alike. Large bay windows in each patient room – as well as enclosed porches, a solarium and patios – enable patients to enjoy the beautiful outdoor setting year-round.
At the Toledo Center, which opened in 2004, floor-to-ceiling windows in every patient room, and two interior courtyards with water features, provide great natural light and year-round access to nature and the outdoors. With a view of beautiful Swan Creek, it, too, has numerous porches and patios. A walkway and extensive gardens, in addition to an outdoor children's play area, help create a home-like atmosphere.
