US-based health care provider Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care has opened a new 15-bed inpatient facility at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, a not-for-profit 378-bed community teaching hospital in White Marsh, Maryland.
Located on the third floor of the south building, the new centre is designed with warm, neutral colours to provide a comfortable environment for patients and families.
Seasons Hospice will be responsible for the clinical operations as well as managing the centre.
According to the health care provider, a team of professionals, including physicians, skilled nurses, certified nurse assistants, social workers, music therapists, chaplains, hospice aides, and volunteers, will be available to serve patients at the new centre.
Seasons Hospice executive director Dean Forman said: "The Franklin Square community has embraced this project and we cannot express our gratitude enough for their extraordinary support.
"We are excited to be a part of the community integrated into the MedStar Franklin Square care continuum.
