Our cardiac hospice specialists will work with your cardiologist and your other physicians to provide you the personalized attention you need when other treatments are not always working — or if your treatment decisions have become more complex — and extra support would be helpful to you and those who care about you.

Our mission is to ensure that you and your family are well supported and informed so symptoms of your end-stage CHF can be managed under our specialized South NJ hospice care while you stay safely at home.

Our South Jersey CHF Hospice Facilities

Samaritan offers two inpatient hospice facilities in South NJ for you or your loved one receiving hospice care and experiencing severe pain or symptoms from congestive heart failure.

Hospice care is provided mostly in your home, assisted living, or nursing home. However, sometimes needs change and your hospice nurse may recommend a transfer to The Samaritan Center at Voorhees or The Samaritan Center at Mount Holly.

Samaritan’s two inpatient hospice facilities provide short-term stays for hospice patients experiencing severe pain, shortness of breath, nausea, and agitation, among other symptoms. Your hospice nurse will work with you to decide if an inpatient hospice facility is the right choice.
