Hospice’s Mandrin Inpatient Care Center opens again after renovations

Hospice of the Chesapeake recently announced it is once again accepting patients at the Mandrin Inpatient Care Center in Harwood. The nonprofit will begin admitting its first patients on Aug. 1.

The center was originally opened in 2006 as a residential hospice house. In 2011, it was relicensed to serve as an inpatient care center. After the opening of the nonprofit’s 14-suite Rebecca Fortney Inpatient Care Center in 2015, Mandrin Center was closed to patients so that patient care areas could be refreshed and renewed.

Each of its eight suites has been revitalized with state-of-the-art beds and updated furnishings to provide comfort to the patient and their family and friends. Other of the center’s upgrades include new security, telephone, network and computer systems, a new state-of-the-art pharmaceutical delivery system and the creation of private counseling and family space in the loft.  Like the center in Pasadena, the Harwood location is designed to provide the latest in acute healthcare and serve as an alternative to hospitalization when assisting those needing significant pain and symptom management at the end of life.

Hospice of the Chesapeake President and CEO Ben Marcantonio knows there are many in the community, from volunteers to referral partners, who are eager to be reunited with this friend. “The Mandrin Inpatient Care Center has a history of being a beacon of compassionate care, serving hundreds of patients and their families,” he said. “Now that we have reopened a brighter and more modern Mandrin Center, it’s a proud moment for us to be able to provide the people of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties 24 suites with round-the-clock care.”
