If you are compassionate, loyal, motivated and interested in making a positive impact in your community, you will find a rewarding career at Hospicare and Palliative Care Services. While everyone here might play a different role, we all work toward the same goal every day: bringing exceptional care, compassion and comfort to those we serve in the community.

There’s never been a more exciting time to join us. We are a growing, not-for-profit hospice and palliative care agency in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York with the goal to reach even more families across Tompkins and Cortland counties.

“In my 14 years of working as a RN in this community, being a hospice nurse has by far been the most rewarding field for me to work in. It’s an honor to serve patients and their families at the end of their lives and to help a person die peacefully and with dignity. Also, the interdisciplinary team approach (hospice medical director, RN, LPN, social work, spiritual care, volunteers, home health aides) to giving care and organizing care for patients and their families has been wonderful to experience as a healthcare professional. I feel so supported and backed by my colleagues at Hospicare and couldn’t do what I do without them. I’ve grown a lot as a person and as nurse in my time working at Hospicare.” 

Leighann, RN

Hospicare is one of the most understanding and flexible places I have been employed. It’s clear that the agency cares personally about each staff member and goes out of their way to ensure we are safe and healthy. The leadership team jumped to immediate action upon arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that Hospicare employees had adequate supplies and appropriate policies to keep us safe. I appreciate feeling like they care about us as individuals. You don’t get that in many jobs these days.” – Kimmy, RN

“I chose Hospicare because I lost my father and my father in law a few years ago and Hospicare took care of both of them.  I was in awe at the caring and compassion of the staff and wanted to become a part of that atmosphere.” – Tammy,
