Bluegrass Hospice Care Center at UK Healthcare

Description
Located on the third floor of UK's Ben F. Roach Building, the hospice care center has 10 private rooms and a common room and kitchen to provide many of the comforts of home for families and patients. Additionally, the center has expanded visitation hours to allow the family more time with their loved one. The new facility is one of only a handful of hospice inpatient care centers in the country located in an academic medical center. This unique collaboration offers opportunities to provide expert care as well as training and education on hospice and palliative medicine. While UK HealthCare has operated virtual hospice beds for years, the new inpatient unit is evidence of the enterprise's belief in the benefits of hospice care and the importance of having a dedicated staff of hospice experts available for patients who need them.
