Quality of life for advanced stages of illness

The Hospice Journey

Hospice is an alternative choice of care giving when a physical cure is no longer possible.

More than 90 percent of people in the final stages of a terminal disease, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, advanced cardiac or neurological disorders, choose to stay at home in familiar surroundings, with their family, friends, pets and comfortable routine. Hospice provides a team of compassionate professionals who address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones.


The WellSpan Difference

Since 1979, WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospice has provided a patient-centered approach to medical care and support for patients at the end of life.

Our continued presence in the community has created lasting relationships with local pharmacies and physicians and developed a base of local nurses and over 40 trained volunteers for support and quick response.

We are part of WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospital, a non-profit system dedicated to excellence in healthcare in every aspect. This connection simplifies the process and coordinates patient care most effectively.
