About Tidelands Hospice
Tidelands Hospice is honored to care for terminally-ill patients regardless of their diagnosis, age, race, nationality, physical capabilities and/or reimbursement source - once a physician has determined hospice care to be appropriate.
Hospice is a special way of comforting and caring for people with terminal illnesses and supporting the people who love them. For more than 25 years, Tidelands has remained committed to creating an environment that respectfully safeguards each patient's right to maintain control of his or her own life. Patients and families are educated about symptom management, pain control and the grief process. On-call nursing assistance is available 24 hours a days, seven days a week. Medications, medical equipment and medical supplies related to the hospice diagnosis are provided.
Most people who are ill would rather be at home than in a hospital. On any given day, Tidelands team members are serving patients in their homes as well as in nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout Georgetown, Horry and Williamsburg counties. In addition, our N.E. and Ruby Green Hospice House is the area's first inpatient hospice facility. It offers a comfortable, 12-bed, state-of-the-art environment for intensive symptom management and end-of-life care.
Once admitted to the Hospice House, many patients transition back home. Their symptoms are expertly managed with medications and other comfort measures, and they benefit from the wide range of services and broad continuum of care provided by our dedicated staff.
