Whatcom Hospice House 

The Whatcom Hospice House enables patients with a limited life expectancy to live the final days of their lives in a comfortable, family-friendly environment. Patients receive the compassionate, individualized care they require in the comfort of a private room.  

Patient rooms are designed to cater to the unique needs of each resident. Every patient room features a fully electric bed, call system, television and DVD player, recliner, ceiling mounted patient lift to facilitate safe transfers from chair to bed, individually climate controlled rooms, mini-fridge and wheelchair accessible private bath. Extra wide doors, from the patient room to the private patio that comes standard with each room, allows the bed or recliner to be moved outside at the patient’s request.

Families are encouraged to visit or stay for as long as desired. To make this possible, day beds and storage space are standard in every patient room. The family room, complete with a fireplace and wireless internet, provides a room for guests to eat, watch a movie or entertain young visitors through crafts and games. A laundry facility is also available for guests to wash their personal items.  

A sanctuary, hydrotherapy room and private meeting room complete the Whatcom Hospice House.  

We invite you to take a virtual tour of the 12-bedroom Whatcom Hospice House through the photos below.
