Welcome to United Hospice of Rockland

Welcome to the website of United Hospice of Rockland, Inc. The entire team looks forward to working with you. Together, we can help your seriously ill patients and their families find comfort and peace in the last months of their lives.   We have tried to provide resources on our website that are valuable to you.  If there are additional things you would like to see on our site, please let us know by contacting us at info@hospiceofrockland.org.  

End of life can be a complex mixture of physical, emotional and spiritual issues.  To address the person and family as a whole, we have a full staff of nurses, clinical social workers, aides, spiritual care advisors, aides and rehabilitation services.  For those who might benefit, we offer massage and music therapies to relieve the stress of living with a serious illness  Furthermore, one of the many advantages of hospice care is that we offer expertise in the symptom management that often accompanies advanced illness.  Our medical director is available to provide consultation to you in caring for your hospice patients.  Please feel free to contact, Dr. David Chmielewski, by calling 845-634-4974

One final thought: the comment that we hear far too frequently from patients and families is, “We wish we had heard about hospice sooner”.  Please review the sections on the Benefits of Referring to UHR and End of Life Indicators.  We hope that this is helpful to you in identifying appropriate individuals to refer for services, including those with end stage COPD, cardiac disease, ALS, dementia and other non-cancer diagnoses.  In advance, we thank you for your referral and for allowing us to help you care for your patients.
