Times Union: Community Hospice, Home Care Agency Seek to Expand Palliative Care
The Times Union published a story about the new “Palliative Care Partners” program, which aims to triple the 1,900 patients receiving palliative care through St. Peter’s Health Partner’s Community Hospice and Eddy Visiting Nurse Association.
From the story:
Furthering a push to offer more home-based palliative services to Capital Region patients with serious illness, the Community Hospice and Eddy Visiting Nurse Association are expanding a program that integrates their services.
The organizations, both part of St. Peter’s Health Partners, launched a $1.5 million fundraising effort over the weekend to support the hoped-for growth of Palliative Care Partners. The program extends the services of Community Hospice, which provides services at the end of life, usually in the hospital, and the Eddy VNA, which provides short-term services in people’s homes after a hospital visit.
