Mission Statement

Ascend Healthcare believes in providing compassionate care and preserving quality of life for all patients at every stage of illness or injury. Our goal is to relieve the patients burden and ease stress with integrity and compassion, through hospice services. We embrace a holistic and personalized approach, as we care for the whole person, mind, body and spirit.

Description

Founded in 1995, Ascend Healthcare is a non-denominational, multi-cultural hospice and palliative care provider. We believe that hospice services should reflect the life we live - fully with dignity and grace. Our hospice team offers comfort and care at the most sensitive time.

Governor Phil Murphy signed a new executive order requiring all healthcare workers to be vaccinated and boosted. As a result, all volunteers must received their booster dose by February 28th. Volunteers are required to be compliant with Ascend Hospice policies, practices and facility requirements for infection control. We provide a Quantiferon blood test (TB screening), a MMR titer (measles, mumps & rubella immunity), background check and personal protective equipment, plus volunteer training!
