Hospice House Info
Olathe Health has provided hospice services for more than 30 years. We believe the end of life can be a meaningful time for patients and their loved ones.

The home-like environment provides medical and nursing care, plus emotional and spiritual support, not only for the patient, but also family and friends. The Hospice House is dedicated and uniquely equipped to provide modern medicine and compassionate care to terminally ill patients, enabling them and their families to live fully and comfortably while coping with end-of-life illnesses.
- A private and serene environment, inside and out, located at Olathe Medical Park, on the campus of Olathe Medical Center.
- Communal sitting areas, kitchen facilities, flower gardens, screened-in porch and other amenities to ensure a comfortable setting.
- Around-the-clock nursing care.
