Description of Good Shepherd Hospice

is a non-profit organization that was created in 2001 with the merger of Good Samaritan, St. Charles and Mercy Hospices and represents a combined thirty years of experience serving the community. It’s mission is to expand and enhance healthcare at the end-of-life for all individuals and their families living throughout Long Island, while educating the community on the philosophy and concept of hospice services. The hospice mission also seeks to educate and promote the necessity for earlier referrals to a hospice so the patient and family have the ability to make informed decisions regarding care. Through its Community Outreach programs Good Shepherd Hospice continues to educate the community and professionals in an attempt to eliminate barriers to hospice care and develop linkages in the community supporting the mission.

Good Shepherd Hospice employs close to 225 staff members and has a volunteer core of close to three hundred. Currently the staff and volunteers are caring for up to 400 patients and their families each day. For more about our extensive hospice program
