Hospice Care Center

In early 2011, the new Dr. Jey Pillai Center for Hospice Care at Wasdin Woods opened. Nestled in two wooded acres, the Rockledge based center provides a home-like setting for those who are too ill to remain at home. The new center offers a true hospice setting to our patients, providing the privacy and comfort patients want, combined with the support of a professional, full-time staff.

Each of the twelve large patient suites includes a screened porch that overlooks a beautiful garden. All of the patient beds are on wheels, so patients can move easily around the suite taking full advantage of the scenic views. Equipped with a flat-screen TV and DVD player, each suite provides a private bathroom and shower making it a comfortable oasis. Additionally, a special children's area includes a game room, TV, and a library stocked with children's books and DVDs.

The center also features a common great room with a handcrafted stonework fireplace, meditation center, spiritual center, on-site bereavement counseling area for families and is equipped with a full kitchen providing room service cooked to order for patients.

The culmination of a 10-year effort, the center is named in memory of the late brother of local cardiologist Ravindran Palaniyandi, MD. Dr. Palaniyandi and his wife, Ambika, donated slightly more than $1 million, and many others also contributed generously to project.
