John R. Williamson Hospice House
Our 8-bed hospice inpatient facility was named in honor of Dr. John R. Williamson by the SHARE Foundation Board of Directors. Dr. Williamson, a native of Waldo, Arkansas, was a respected ophthalmologist and practiced in El Dorado for many years. He was dedicated to bettering healthcare in south Arkansas and was instrumental in the vision and completion of our Hospice House.
The John R. Williamson Hospice House is located at the intersection of Champagnolle Road and U.S. 167 in El Dorado, Arkansas. The hospice inpatient facility accepted its first patient in March 2007.
The John R. Williamson Hospice House accepts patients from anywhere.
Care provided in the John R. Williamson Hospice House:
- General Inpatient Care: When a patient is in need of symptom management, such as medication adjustment for a pain crisis or a patient requires more skilled care than can be provided at home
- Respite Care: Respite care is available to patients for up to a five-night stay at one time, based upon room availability.
- Residential Care: When a hospice patient no longer meets the criteria for General Inpatient Care, short term residential care may be available as an option. This is based upon room availability and a room and board rate will apply.
