Peninsula Hospital Center Volunteers Trained In Hospice Care
Hospice Care Network and the Hospital Center personnel were very touched and encouraged by the overwhelming response from members of the community who wanted to become an active part of the new hospice program and volunteer their time. The new inpatient Hospice Unit at Peninsula Hospital Center is a seven bed private-room unit which began accepting patients on July 21.
The official dedication of this special program is scheduled for October 27, 2008. Peninsula Hospital Center, an affiliate of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, is located at 51-15 Beach Channel Drive in Arverne. Peninsula also has support groups for people who have diabetes, stroke and cancer. They are also looking for people who want to serve as a volunteeer or a member of the PHC Auxiliary.
