For those who prefer hospice care outside their home or are not able to remain in their home, Munson Healthcare’s licensed Hospice House is a beautiful alternative.
This eight-bedroom home is tucked in a quiet, wooded area near Munson Medical Center in Traverse City. Comfortable private rooms offer space for family and friends to gather, as well as a covered porch with a beautiful natural view. A meditation room and a family lounge with a fireplace, kitchen, and dining area are also available. Family members are welcome at any time.
Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance covers hospice care provided at Hospice House, although the daily room and board rate usually is not covered. Financial assistance may be available to eligible applicants.
Accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP), Munson Healthcare Hospice meets national standards for care quality, operational management, health outcomes, and more. Our full-time Medical Director and many of our physicians are certified in hospice and palliative care. They work together with a dedicated team of specially trained hospice nurses, aides, counselors, and other caregivers to help the entire family.
