Hubbard Hospice House West is a ten-bed facility attached to the first floor of Thomas Memorial Hospital in South Charleston, WV. As an extension of the first Hubbard Hospice House, this unit is designed with the comforts of home in mind. Nurses and certified nursing assistants are available around the clock to provide care. Social workers, counselors and chaplains tend to provide the counseling and spiritual needs of the patient and families. Our doctors regularly visit the patients and are on call 24 hours a day. Volunteers also are available to make the patient and families as comfortable as possible. Hubbard Hospice House West is appropriate for patients who:
- Require more intensive, skilled medical care than can be provided in their home or place of residence;
- Need respite care to give their family a short rest from providing care at home; or
- Do not have a caregiver in the home and can no longer safely live alone.
