Hospice Centers

The majority of Hospice of Northwest Ohio’s patients prefer, and are able, to stay in their own homes. However, the Hospice Centers are an ideal option when patients' needs are greater than what can be managed at home. Most often, patients enter the Hospice Centers when they have acute or fluctuating medical needs that require intensive pain and symptom management. Read More.
