About the Hospice Serenity House


IMG 4634

The MHP Hospice Serenity House was built in 2010 for hospice patients in Mahaska County and surrounding communities who need special care. Any hospice patient is welcome, regardless of the hospice service he or she is currently using. No one will be turned away or denied hospice services, regardless of their ability to pay. That is our commitment to you.

We created Serenity House on our Oskaloosa campus to be a home away from home for patients and their families when they are most in need of end-of-life care and comfort. The setting allows staff to respond quickly to sudden changes in a patient’s condition and to provide a meaningful experience during a patient’s last days.

What kind of care is provided?
General Inpatient Stay: Short-term for pain control, acute or chronic symptom management that cannot be provided in other settings.
Respite: Short-term (up to 5 days), temporary care of a patient to relieve a primary caregiver.
Residential: Patient lives at the Hospice Serenity House for an extended period of time when staying at home is no longer an option.
