It’s about the living. Hospice is a special way of caring for terminally ill patients and families. The emphasis is on comfort and palliative care, not on cure. Hospice care is holistic. It looks at all aspects of the person, not just the terminal illness. Hospice meets emotional, spiritual and psychosocial needs, as well as the physical needs. The specialized services of Jameson Hospice focus on the family needs by including them in the care of the patient, as well as offering educational and emotional support. Hospice is a team approach. Jameson Hospice works with the patient's attending physician and with the Interdisciplinary Hospice Team to provide top quality palliative care.
Nationally recognized for outstanding care, Jameson Hospice ranks at the top for patient-centered quality outcomes and patient/family satisfaction ratings, both in the region and in the country. As part of Jameson Health System, Jameson Hospice is one of the only not-for-profit hospice organizations in our region.
The administrative offices of Jameson Hospice of Lawrence County are located at the Jameson Hospital South Campus at 1000 South Mercer Street, New Castle, PA 16101.
