Referral Process for Palliative Care

To begin the process, call our admissions staff at 607-272-0212.

Anyone can contact the PATH program to begin the referral process; the referral does not have to begin with a physician.

It is better to err on the side of early referral.

Our staff can be most helpful when we have sufficient time to build a trusting relationship with patients and their caregiver(s). Having access to our on-call nurse helps prevent unnecessary trips to the emergency room and alleviates patient and caregiver anxiety and fears.

If you have a terminal or serious illness and would like assistance on navigating the healthcare system, and education and support on how to improve your comfort and quality of life, you can give us a call at 607-272-0212.
