David Simpson Hospice House​

The first of its kind in Ohio, and one of only a few in the United States at that time, David Simpson Hospice House was built in 1995. It has sheltered thousands of patients and families in its home-like, environment and has been the inspiration and model for many other hospice programs. Easily accessible from I-90 and Route 2, the House is adjacent to Cleveland Clinic's Euclid Hospital.

The beautifully landscaped grounds and winding Vista Walk offer serene sitting areas, a gazebo where many special occasions have taken place and gorgeous sunsets every evening.
