Yellow Rose Patient Care Unit
Should an emergency arise that requires hospital care for a Indiana University Health Hospice patient, the Yellow Rose Patient Care Unit at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital is available. It features 12 private rooms and experienced medical and professional staff.
The staff is specially trained to care for hospice patients facing end-of-life issues. In collaboration with the IU Health Hospice team, they make patients comfortable and pain free. Hospice-trained volunteers are also part of this unit's care team.
The Yellow Rose Patient Care Unit is designed with a friendly and peaceful atmosphere. Families, friends, children and pets are always welcome to visit. The unit includes a family kitchen, as well as a laundry and library for hospice patients and their loved ones. Live musicians perform several times a week, and stereos in each room offer a home-like feel.
The unit also offers a residential care option for IU Health Hospice patients whose symptoms are controlled. Residential patients pay a daily rate to live on the unit. This fee provides the same integrated support that the hospice care team offers to those who live at home.
