Haven cares for over 90 percent of patients in their home or wherever they call home. But when there is a need for short-term inpatient care, Haven offers hospice care centers in Gainesville, Palatka, Chiefland, Lake City and Orange Park. In these welcoming and home-like settings, Haven clinicians provide around-the-clock care to patients needing intense pain and symptom management as well as provide education and support to family and loved ones. The care centers offer overnight, respite care to provide a break to primary caregivers for up to five days.
Haven's commitment to all its communities extends far beyond providing hands-on clinical, emotional and spiritual care. Haven provides clinical education to future health professionals, including medical students, residents, and fellows.
At Haven Hospice, we feel that it’s an honor and a privilege to be invited into so many lives to provide end of life care. We strive daily to make the difference in the lives of our patients, their families and in the communities we serve.
