The Paula J. Baber hospice home was built with our patients and their families in mind. Our hospice home has many unique features that makes it feel less like a hospice care facility and more like your home. We want to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. To do this, we offer a variety of different amenities and accommodations. 

In Honor of a Remarkable Woman

Our hospice home is named in honor of Paula J. Baber. Paula was truly a remarkable woman. Steady and constant, she was a supportive wife and mother, a woman of strength and dignity. As a volunteer, Paula devoted hundreds of hours at Trinity Regional Medical Center during her lifetime.

Paula received hospice care prior to losing a courageous battle with cancer. "The hospice staff was very caring and provided wonderful care to Paula," said Paula's husband, Dr. William Baber.
