Stein Inpatient Hospice Unit


The Stein Inpatient Hospice Unit becomes home for our patients and their families, and we do everything we can to make their time with us special. Located at Firelands Regional Medical Center South Campus in Sandusky, the unit offers all the comforts of a home plus medical care around the clock. Patients come to the Stein Inpatient Unit, located on the third floor, for pain and symptom management.

We offer 18 patient rooms, each with a private bath, sitting area, sleeper sofa and a television equipped with a compact disc player. Our philosophy is to make the Inpatient Unit as homelike as possible, which means you often hear music coming from a room and children playing, see pets lying by a bed and families sharing a meal. 

The Hospice Inpatient Unit includes:

  • Family room, where families gather to relax, read or watch television. Children enjoy playing with Wii computer game and other toys
  • Dining area, where meals are available for family and friends. Hot drinks, daily newspapers and vending machine always available
  • Spa, where patients enjoy a warm whirlpool bath. Other spa services, such as pedicures. manicures and facials, are done in patient rooms
  • Therapy Room, where our comfort care team helps patients and families relax through gentle body massage, the healing touch of Reiki and guided imagery.  Soft music, soothing aromas and dim lights add to the experience
  • Emily’s Library, a quiet room for reading and meditation with limited access to the Internet
  • Sitting Areas, where families gather or meet with our bereavement staff, chaplains and social workers
