COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information
Hospice & Community Care’s leadership is meeting daily to update the organization’s plans and preparations as we continue to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). We are communicating regularly with our staff, patients and families, and volunteers to insure everyone’s care and safety during this time.
Hospice & Community Care is proud to support our nurses and aides, physicians, social workers, nurse practitioners, chaplains, bereavement counselors, and our entire team, as we work together to continue to provide the excellent care that Hospice & Community Care has delivered for 40 years. Thank you to the individuals, businesses and organizations that are so generously supporting these efforts to help offset the tremendous costs of continuing care during this time.
