The mission of the Saint Barnabas Hospice and Palliative Care Center (SBHPCC) is to provide physical, emotional, social and spiritual care to terminally ill individuals and their families. Education, research, advocacy, and community outreach encompassing issues of hospice care, death, bereavement, and loss are integral parts of the program.
Hospice affirms life. It exists to provide support and care for persons in the last stages of an incurable illness. Hospice recognizes that dying is a natural process and is as much a part of life as birth, growth and maturity. Hospice helps families understand and deal with the loss of loved ones. Hospice exists in the hope that through the efforts of a caring community, patients and their caregivers may attain greater physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort in the face of terminal illness. SBHPCC works to be the premier provider for hospice services in New Jersey through excellence in patient/family care, provider collaboration, community commitment, and cost effectiveness. SBHPCC is a non-profit corporate entity established for a charitable purpose. Our motivation is compassion for the terminally ill and their loved ones. However, sound fiscal management necessitates raising excess revenues to insure survival. We are governed by a Board of Trustees (members are not compensated) who set policy and are accountable for all aspects of agency operations. Hospice recognizes that each patient and family has unique physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. The agency employs a team approach to tailor services to the singular needs of each patient and family. Emphasis is placed on palliative care; that is, care devoted to pain control, symptom management, education, support and empowerment. The hospice Interdisciplinary Team includes volunteers, nurses, social workers, chaplains, a clinical management team, administrative and support personnel and executive leadership. SBHPCC has a main office in West Orange, NJ with a ten-bed inpatient unit at Monmouth Medical Center, Long Branch, NJ and an 9-bed inpatient unit at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, Newark, NJ.
