The Stein Hospice Care Center 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 Care Center offers all the comforts of a home plus medical care around the clock. Patients come to the Care Center, located on the third floor, for pain and symptom management. Click here for directions.

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 Care Center 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.  All of our staff, from physicians, nurses and nursing assistants to our chaplains, counselors, social workers and volunteers, brings warmth and professionalism as they carry out our mission – to provide comfort, compassion and support during life’s final journey.


The Care Center 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;

  • Sitting Areas, where families gather or meet with our bereavement staff, chaplains and social workers.
”I wanted to extend my utmost gratitude for the care that you gave to my grandma in her short stay at your facility. She couldn’t stop raving about the whirlpool and how “delicious” it was. Even though we only got to know the staff for a short time, my family and I will never forget the impact that you had. ” – Jen Vance
