The services offered at the Adler Center place it on the leading edge of hospice and palliative innovation in the country. “Our dedicated staff will provide world-class inpatient care to patients and their families at the Center,” said Malene. “We’re excited to warmly welcome patients and their families. Our goal is to provide the best in comfort and care so families can make the most of every moment.”
The Adler Center, situated in the Stone Springs development on Route 50 in Loudoun County, is home to a 21-bed inpatient hospice unit, palliative care clinic, and the Capital Caring Center for Pain and Palliative Care (CPPC). It is also a base for the expert home care response team who provide care to more than 320 patients each day, in Loudoun, Prince William, and Fauquier counties.
The Capital Caring Center for Pain and Palliative Care (CPPC), under the leadership of Dr. Michael Byas-Smith, began seeing patients in early August 2014 and has already demonstrated Capital Caring’s vision of being the best in world-class care. “The procedures performed on-site have already begun improving the quality of life for patients. Literally, we see patients wheeled in who are able to walk out,” Malene said. The CPPC offers an array of options, services, and treatments for pain and symptom management as a result of an advanced illness.
Ground broke on the 50,000 square foot facility in July 2012. In addition to the benefits of leading edge care in a home-like atmosphere, patients and families can visit the spa, gift shop, and exercise facilities also available at the Center.
