The LifePath Hospice Inpatient Unit at Tampa General Hospital (TGH) is a tranquil, compassionate place designed like a home away from home for individuals who have terminal illness and need short-term, round-the-clock care due to a variety of acute medical needs.
The LifePath Hospice Inpatient Unit offers many of the same medical services available at the hospital but with dedicated hospice staff composed of registered nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains and trained volunteers.
We work with you, your family and physician to develop an individualized care plan offering intensive treatment during a medical crisis.
