The Bridge Program’s treatment focus is management of the transition from curative care to palliative care when the focus includes both disease-modifying and comfort care.

The right level of care, at the right time, with the right team

The Bridge to Hospice program offers coordination of care for patients and families coping with end-stage chronic illness or life-limiting illness. Frequently, hospice nurses take on ‘bridge’ patients who are still seeking active treatment for life-threatening illnesses, or who are not emotionally ready to consider hospice. This collaboration between our home health and hospice teams ensure a smooth, timely and seamless transition from home health to hospice care.
