Forbes Hospice

Inpatient Unit Hospice Care

A unique part of the Forbes Hospice and Palliative Care is our 12-bed inpatient unit in the Bloomfield area of Pittsburgh. This unit has a home-like feel but is equipped to provide state-of-the-art care. All of the private rooms are equipped with televisions, as well as bathrooms with showers.

A massage therapist is also available for patients and their families three times a week at no charge.

The care team consists of nurses, certified nursing aides, counselors, spiritual support and trained volunteers all under the direction on-site by our full-time medical director. Dr. Randy Hebert is certified in Hospice and Palliative Medicine and is an expert on symptom management. Reasons for inpatient care can include, but are not limited to:

  • limited life expectancy
  • symptom management issues
  • respite care
  • short-term residential care

Our unit encourages families and friends to visit with no restriction on visitation times. Family can stay with their loved one overnight if they would like and amenities, such as a meditation room, family break room and common areas, add to your comfort during this difficult time. Pictures and keepsakes can be brought in to personalize the room. Medicare and other insurances primarily cover the cost of this care.
