St. Mary's Hospice House provides inpatient and respite comfort care for patients of all ages who have life-limiting illnesses and can no longer remain at home.
When the patient's care needs are beyond what the family can manage, or when the family needs a break, our Hospice House can provide the care they need, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The 7,500-square foot facility encompasses 12 private patient rooms in a comforting environment. Each room features home-like décor, with sophisticated medical equipment hidden away until needed. Patients can come for a few days while their caregivers rest, or be admitted for inpatient care. Families are encouraged to spend time with their loved ones, with plenty of space for visiting in the patient's room, private visiting areas, and in common areas such as a dining room and library.
The Hospice House is located on the peaceful campus of St. Mary's Highland Hills Village retirement community in Bogart. Just minutes from major highways, shopping centers and places of worship, the wooded, 66-acre campus is beautifully landscaped and well-maintained to provide a soothing natural environment for residents, patients, families and staff. A small chapel near the Hospice House provides a private location for prayer and contemplation.
