About Kobacker House
Hospice Care and Serenity
Kobacker House combines all the comforts of home with the benefits of round-the-clock medical care. Designed to provide short-term inpatient care for expert symptom management, it also provides a nurturing respite for families, including space for grief support and education programs.
Features of Our Inpatient Hospice Care Center
OhioHealth built Kobacker House with the help of compassionate donors who saw the need for a better end-of-life experience. It’s a welcoming place that combines the comforts of home with the benefits of advanced, round-the-clock medical care.
We offer short-term inpatient hospice care services from expert caregivers. Our advanced technology and teams can step in when care becomes too complex and serious to manage at home. We provide multidisciplinary services in a beautiful, state-of-the-art 32-bed inpatient hospice care facility. Every feature is designed to be the next best thing to home.
Highly skilled doctors and specialists have the right equipment and expertise to offer effective pain relief and symptom management. We care for your body, emotions and spirit. Extra space is dedicated to grief support and educational programs to help during difficult times.
