Inpatient Care

Inpatient care is provided in a hospital setting. When symptoms cannot be controlled with routine care, a person may require extra assistance or more advanced medical attention. The St. Elizabeth Palliative Care Inpatient consultation service provides relief in situations where symptoms of a serious illness are not well-controlled.

Palliative Care at St. Elizabeth can be provided in the inpatient setting at our Edgewood, Florence and Ft. Thomas hospitals. Our team focuses on symptom management and increased comfort, so that you can focus on what really matters with your loved ones.

If Your Loved One Is Admitted

If your loved one is admitted at one of our hospitals, or if you are trying to reach our inpatient team urgently, please call (859) 301-2000 and provide the hospital location.
