Hospice & Palliative Care
MJHS Hospice is the largest Hospice and Palliative Care program in New York State and the largest Jewish Hospice in the region.
Our groundbreaking hospice and palliative care program offers a significant difference in end-of-life care for all New Yorkers. As part of this commitment, we have created specialty programs to serve pediatric and clinically complex patients, as well as Jewish and Asian patients who benefit from our truly unique, culturally specific, end-of-life care. .
We have a deep and abiding belief that the end-of-life is still life, and no time to stop living. While it is certainly a time of great physical and emotional challenge, it can also be a profoundly meaningful and rewarding experience.
Multidisciplinary teams offer state-of-the-art, individualized, end-of-life and palliative care services to patients and family members who reside at home or in an assisted living community, skilled nursing facilities and hospitals. Last year, two independent surveys conducted by the Department of Health and Joint Commission awarded MJHS Hospice the highest possible rating, with no recommendations for improvement—a rare distinction.
