Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

We are devoted to treating our Pawling patients and their families with care and comfort. Our team will give individualized care and support to help live out remaining days happy and pain free.

The Regional Hospice center is where patients decide they no longer want to go through curative treatments that are difficult and painful, or that require them to go into a hospital.Patients may also want to stay home and spend time with those they love while staying in a familiar space.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We have become a reputable facility for hospice care over the years, not only by providing excellent medical care, but by treating our patients and their families with respect, peace, and compassion. We connect with each patient and fully understand their goals while providing symptom and pain management to improve their daily lives.

 Comfort Versus Curative

Hospice and palliative care are a holistic approach to managing pain and symptoms of a serious illness. In addition, they provide emotional and spiritual comfort for the patient and their family.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Though anyone can request our hospice services, patients are admitted under a doctor’s orders, and are often referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency. We offer an online hospice referral form on our website.
