MJHS Pediatric Hospice & Palliative Care Program

MJHS Hospice & Palliative Care, serving all of NYC has one of the largest and most respected not-for-profit hospice programs in the region, offering hospice patients care when and where they need it: at home, in assisted living communities, nursing homes and hospitals across Greater New York, as well as their own hospice residences. MJHS takes pride in helping adult and pediatric patients and their families live life to the fullest when dealing with a life-limiting illness by easing suffering, upholding dignity, affirming values and improving quality of life. As a charitable not-for-profit, MJHS is committed to delivering compassionate expert care, offering peace of mind and providing comfort for persons of all ages.

No parent ever wants to give up hope when their child is facing a life-limiting illness. The natural instinct is to fight and seek aggressive treatment. Until now, this forced many families to forgo the supportive services offered by hospice and palliative care. MJHS makes it possible do both, providing their pediatric patients with hospice and palliative services in the comfort of their own homes, while they continue to actively seek curative treatment.
