Who We Are

  • -Resides in Warren County or the surrounding area.
  • -Has approval of his or her physician.
  • -Has a life expectancy of 6 months or less if the illness runs its normal course.
  • -Has a family member or other appropriate person available to assist with continuing care needs and decision-making processes.
  • -Has changed the medical goal from curative to comfort treatment.
  • -Has knowledge of prognosis and has consented to care.

  • In addition to providing services regardless of a patient’s race, age, sex, ethnic background, or handicap, Hospice of Warren County also does not discriminate against patients based on their ability to pay.  While the hospice program does accept payments from Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurances, community support through United Fund donations, memorial gifts, donations, bequests, and its membership drive help defray the cost of the extensive Hospice of Warren County services that are not reimbursed.  The success of the program depends on this invaluable community support.  Hospice of Warren County is a member of the Pennsylvania Hospice Network and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.
