To affirm life during its final stages by providing holistic compassionate care to patients and their families; by providing access to hospice care for underserved or difficult to serve populations; by wise and efficient use of available resources, and by educating the community.

Description:
We care for terminally ill patients with a wide range of illnesses including cancer, advanced cardiac disorders, advanced neurological disorders, AIDS, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Multiple Sclerosis and any end stage disease.

Care is delivered by a team of physicians, nurses, social workers, home health aides, bereavement coordinator, pastoral counselor and volunteers. Under the direction of the patient's physician and our hospice medical director, the team follows a personalized plan of physical, emotional and spiritual care. The plan is continually reviewed and adapted to meet the patient's changing needs.

At Compassionate Care we are committed to quality of life, which enables patients to remain in the comfort and privacy of their own homes, with their loved ones. We provide the special care and services that make that choice possible.

History:
Compassionate Care offers hospice, home health and palliative care. Hospice is a service provided to the terminally ill and their family to ease the physical and emotional trauma associated with end of life. Compassionate Care Hospice (CCH) was formed 17 years ago and now operates hospice programs in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Hospice services provided in the home; in long-term care/skilled nursing and assisted living facilities and in hospitals. The bulk of reimbursement for hospice services comes from Medicare (over 70%), with managed care and Medicaid providing the remainder. To allow us to serve a greater patient population and meet the changing needs of our patients and families, we now offer home and palliative care in some of our locations as well.

CCH's operational staff is headquartered in Westampton, NJ. And is led by its CEO Milt Heching (a founder of CCH), and includes a COO, General Counsel, Controller. A/P, A/R and accounting support personnel. CCH prides itself on its record of employee retention, its openness to innovation and, most of all, for the quality of care that it consistently provides.

Charitable donations are deposited with the Compassionate Care Hospice Foundation, a 501c3 not for profit foundation formed by Compassionate Care Hospice. The foundation now receives almost $500,000 annually in donations from family and friends.
