MJHS
MJHS Hospice, dedicated to serving the needs of New Yorkers facing a life-limiting illness since 1973, is part of MJHS, a charitable not-for-profit organization founded more than a century ago. MJHS Hospice is the largest Hospice and Palliative Care program in New York State and the largest Jewish Hospice in the region.

Our groundbreaking hospice and palliative care program offers a significant difference in end-of-life care for all New Yorkers, especially for pediatric and clinically complex patients, as well as Jewish and Chinese patients who benefit from our truly unique, culturally specific, end-of-life programs.

Multidisciplinary teams offer state-of-the-art, individualized, end-of-life and palliative care services to patients and family members who reside at home or in assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, hospice residences and hospitals. MJHS Hospice is currently the only New York-based organization that requires all of its physicians and nurses to be board-certified in hospice and palliative care within their first year of hire. In addition, all staff, regardless of level or title, must complete cultural sensitivity training.

Last year, two independent surveys conducted by the Department of Health and Joint Commission awarded MJHS Hospice the highest possible rating, with no recommendations for improvement — a rare distinction.

MJHS Hospice is a highly respected, innovative not-for-profit organization with strong Jewish roots and a compelling mission to provide compassionate end-of-life care to those who need it the very most, regardless of age, ethnicity, religion or ability to pay.
