MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care
MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care serves the needs of patients and families across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Nassau County. As one of the largest and most respected not-for-profit programs in the greater New York region, we are committed to offering patients and families with chronic or advanced illness compassionate, expert care, along with peace of mind and comfort.
Both hospice and palliative care services are aimed at providing comfort to patients and support for their families. One of the main differences is that palliative care can begin at the time a diagnosis is made and the patient is still pursuing curative treatment. Hospice care begins only after treatment for the disease has stopped. Learn more about the difference between hospice and palliative care.
Your level of care and services will vary depending on your individual needs but could include; visits by members of the hospice interdisciplinary team, medical and nursing management of the physical symptoms of your illness and emotional and spiritual support for you and your family.
Whether you are with us to receive hospice or palliative care, you and your family can expect an extraordinary level of attention and support.
