“I only wish we had contacted VNSNY sooner about end-of-life care.”
End-of-life care from VNSNY provides proactive, symptom management to individuals in advanced stages of illness.
Our Care Teams work together with the patient, family and the patient’s physician to: improve quality of life; relieve physical, emotional and spiritual distress; provide an individual plan of care; and give support to family members.
VNSNY's end-of-life care provides patients and their families with services from a top-notch team of professionals who have training and expertise in managing the symptoms of advanced illnesses and enhancing quality of life. Our Care Teams are available around the clock.
End-of-life care from VNSNY is available in the home, in nursing homes, at our VNSNY Haven Hospice Specialty Care Unit in a separate wing of Bellevue Hospital and at the Shirley Goodman and Himan Brown Hospice Residence on the Upper East Side.
The goal of end-of-life services is to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. VNSNY has outperformed the industry standard in pain management for the past eight years with more than 90% of patients reporting comfort within 48 hours.
