The Crozer-Keystone Hospice Residence at Taylor Hospital is a beautiful 10-bed inpatient unit designed for comfort and ease. Private rooms are tastefully decorated like a home.

Accommodations for Family Members and Caregivers

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things that someone will face. Knowing this, the Crozer-Keystone Hospice Residence at Taylor Hospital was constructed with the family and/or caregiver’s needs in mind as well as the patient’s. Each room has extra space to accommodate a family member who would like to stay overnight, and the unit also offers guest showers and laundering facilities. Shopping in Ridley Park’s quaint stores are mere steps away, as is the hospital’s 100th Anniversary Garden—constructed in 2010 in honor of Taylor’s centennial.
