PeaceHealth Southwest Hospice


5400 MacArthur Blvd
Vancouver, WA 98661

The PeaceHealth Hospice team is dedicated to easing the fears, anxieties, and discomforts that occur during the advanced stages of illness.

PeaceHealth Hospice gives people who are dying the opportunity to choose how they will live the rest of their lives. The hospice team, including the patient's physician, provides information, education, and fulfillment of each patient's choices, including those sometimes small but always special things that give each individual life its own unique luster.

The hospice team may include registered nurses, medical social workers, registered dietitians, volunteers, and others whose expertise is available when needed for personal bathing care, spiritual support and guidance, rehabilitative therapies, and support services to meet even non-medical needs.
