  • Topic Info:When you or someone you love is facing the final stages of life, Tidelands Health will be by your side. We've partnered with Tidelands Community Hospice to offer high-quality, compassionate hospice care in our community.

    When you receive care for a serious illness or chronic condition at Tidelands Health, palliative care can improve your quality of life. Palliative care can ease your symptoms, reduce discomfort and provide emotional and spiritual guidance at any stage of your disease.

    Hospice care provides comfort, dignity, quality of life and time to individuals diagnosed with a terminal illness. Patients who may benefit from hospice services include those in the final stages of diseases such as heart disease, dementia, Alzheimer's disease, COPD, HIV/AIDS and cancer.

    Hospice care can be delivered in the comfort of home, providing medical, emotional and spiritual support to patients and their loved ones. Tidelands Community Hospice also offers the N.E. and Ruby Green Hospice House for patients who need inpatient hospice care.

    Listen in as R. Andrew Philipp II, MD discusses how you’ll feel more comfortable in both mind and body with support from our caring team.
