St. John Hospice Open

Visitors: If you exhibit any symptoms of cold or flu, or feel unwell, refrain from entering these facilities. Your cooperation is vital in maintaining the health of our patients, residents and staff.

About this location

Serving people from across Vancouver, St. John Hospice is a freestanding residence situated amongst the scenic views of the UBC campus and across the street from the UBC Botanical Garden.

St. John Hospice was the first community hospice on Vancouver’s West Side, with 14 furnished, comfortable ensuite bedrooms. At the site, doctors, nurses and other health-care professionals provide 24-hour palliative care.

We work to make sure you and your family are provided with compassionate care to maintain dignity and quality of life. Our goal at St. John Hospice is to help you live as well as you can, for as long as you can.

St. John Hospice is also unique in that UBC’s Faculty of Medicine has dedicated space in the facility for researchers investigating best practices for end-of-life care, and for the training of health professionals.

St. John Hospice visiting information

Families (as defined by you) are welcome to be present at any time – Providence Health Care does not restrict visiting hours to family members. Family members can even stay overnight.

Of course, you must follow a few guidelines:

  • Sick people need rest. You can visit often, but please respect your loved ones wishes for privacy or rest.
  • Children under 14 must be under adult supervision (from someone other than the patient) at all times.
  • Visiting may be restricted to protect the privacy and rights of other patients.
  • Your visit may be interrupted by staff to provide patient care.
  • Refrain from using scented products as other residents/visitors/staff may have severe allergies to scented products.
  • If you feel unwell, have an infection, flu-like or respiratory symptoms, or any sort of communicable disease, or have recently been in contact with anyone with these symptoms, we encourage you to stay at home until you’re well again.
  • We may not have the space to accommodate a large number of family members, but we’ll try our best.
  • We cannot accommodate pets to live at Hospice but they are welcome to visit if they are under control.

If you need more information – just ask so we can help create the best care experience overall.
