The MJHS Hospice Inpatient Residence at Menorah
The MJHS Hospice Inpatient Residence is the first in New York City, and one of the few in the region to care for children as well as adults.
Our 16-suite hospice inpatient residence redefines hospice care by offering patients and their families a home away from home while providing the best in medical care.
A unique home-like atmosphere, located on the ocean in Manhattan Beach, the residence provides aggressive pain and symptom management for patients whose symptoms cannot be managed at home. If needed, infusion therapies, ventilator support, bedside procedures and integrative medicine will be provided by our round-the-clock, board-certified, caring staff. Palliative medicine physicians will assess patients daily. They will also facilitate family meetings to discuss goals of care and decision making.
A whole new level of care
While most families try to keep their seriously ill child at home, surrounded by the people they love and in familiar surroundings, sometimes it’s just not possible. Until now, there has only been one alternative — a sterile hospital environment. MJHS, understanding the unique needs of pediatric patients and their families, has changed all that.
