Chandler Hall is very pleased to announce that our Hospice program has been designated Deficiency Free by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a department of Health and Human Services. This means that Chandler Hall is one of only 13% of Hospice programs nation-wide that has met the stringent standards set by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the country.
Hospice is a philosophy of care for people of all ages with a terminal illness. Chandler Hall began one of the area’s first and most comprehensive hospice programs in 1982. We provide holistic, personalized care through our Hospice at Home program as well as in our residential Hospice Pavilion on our campus.
Did you know that hospice care can offer comfort care while still undergoing treatment? A common misconception is that hospice care is only for people at the very last stages of their illness. In fact, Medicare, most insurance providers and worker’s compensation cover hospice for a much longer period of time, allowing people to receive the support they need and deserve.
Many people needing hospice care wish to remain in their own homes, surrounded by the people and atmosphere they cherish. They and their families receive similar support as those who move to our Hospice Pavilion.
The Chandler Hall Hospice Pavilion is one of the first inpatient residential hospice settings in Pennsylvania. Each patient and family member receives dignity and respect during this most difficult transition.
The Pavilion offers a home-like setting with a beautiful patio and garden, cozy common areas, and meal options 24 hour a day. Family members, including pets, are welcome.
Residents and loved ones spend time together, knowing that physical and emotional support surround them. There is simply nothing like it in the area.Information about visitation during COVID-19
