Providing a High Standard of Inpatient Hospice Care
SECU Crystal Coast Hospice House: Care at Its Best When It's Needed Most
The SECU Crystal Coast Hospice House will provide the highest quality end-of-life care for every patient referred to inpatient care with the only admission restriction being bed availability. The patient's hospice team will address all aspects of the patient's hospice care program as well as embrace family and friends so they may focus on cherishing every moment together.
Operating the Hospice House
Crystal Coast Hospice House is excited to partner with one of the most respected inpatient hospice facility operators in the State. After reviewing the cost-effectiveness and feasibility of several operating scenarios, CCHH began discussing a partnership to operate the inpatient facility with 3HC (Home Health & Hospice Care). 3HC mentored CCHH during the very early phases of our efforts. CCHH is confident that the terms worked out with 3HC are the best option for the facility's operation. CCHH and 3HC have signed a long-term lease agreement that does not include payment of management fees to 3HC. Add to that the 17 years of successful experience 3HC has in operating the Kitty Askins Hospice Center - an inpatient hospice facility in Goldsboro NC; that they are an eastern NC non-profit organization; and that they are close enough to share significant administrative costs between their Kitty Askins Hospice Center and the SECU Crystal Coast Hospice House, partnering with 3HC is a sound choice to facilitate the highest quality of care for our community in the most cost effective, sustainable and expeditious manner.
CCHH continues to own the hospice house and as owner ensures that the hospice house is well maintained, well furnished and comfortable for patients and their families. 3HC offers in-home hospice care but does not have a Carteret County office. 3HC works with hospice agencies, hospitals and other referring providers in the five county service region to provide exceptional inpatient hospice care.

Partnering with Hospitals and Physicians
Keeping the Hospice House as local as possible is a very high priority for CCHH and 3HC. It is discussed in every decision we make. In fact, we were recently awarded a Rural Hope grant for job creation of 16 new positions, primarily caregivers, which have been filled from within the community.
In cooperation with local in-home hospice providers, area hospitals and local physicians, the SECU Crystal Coast Hospice House offers a seamless continuum of care for patients. Physicians may follow their own patients and care for them at the Hospice Home by maintaining regular visits with their patients at the Hospice House and 24 hour a day on-call services. Or, patients may be transferred to the care of the facility's medical director.
Our medical director and caregivers remain in contact with the patient's referring provider.
