HOSPICE FOUNDATION OF WESTERN NEW YORK INC
November 4, 2008

The Hospice Foundation of WNY was established in 1992 to provide support to Hospice Buffalo (Erie County, NY) and its affiliates under the umbrella of The Center for Hospice & Palliative Care. Mission Statement: The Center for Hospice & Palliative Care serves individuals with serious illness and those who share their lives. We are a leader in hospice, palliative care, grief support education, advocacy and other life-enhancing services. Hospice Buffalo is one of the most innovative Hospice programs in the United States as evidenced by the support it provides to more than 600 patients a day. Hospice Buffalo is located on the grounds of Hospice Mitchell Campus, that offers a 22-bed hospice inpatient unit specializing in pain and symptom management, a ten bed hospice residence (Hospice House), and the beautiful new Mary & Ralph Wilson Jr. Counseling Center – home to Life Transitions Center and the Essential Care for Children program - an innovative pediatric palliative care program for seriously ill children. Hospice Buffalo has also partnered with St. John Baptist Church to address the need to improve access to minority communities that traditionally underutilize end-of-life care. The new 8-bed St. John Baptist Hospice Buffalo house offers very home-like atmosphere that incorporates the cultural needs of the community. TESTIMONIALS: “I am impressed and thankful that such a quality organization supports our community.” “…there was always a concern from all of the Hospice staff for the care and well being of the living family involved as well as for those in the final stages of their life.” “All the staff are exemplary individuals that possess an admirable level of care and compassion…” “The Hospice staff was very caring and it made such a difficult time in our lives a little bit easier. I’m sure he left the earth a little bit more at ease due to all of your care.” The staff at Hospice was “so supportive, dedicated and caring- not only in regards to my son and his needs and goals, but with all the members of our family. We could not have gotten through this difficult time without your help and concern.” “Your warmth, compassion and support helped ease us through this difficult time. Your unending willingness to help my dad live his last days in comfort, dignity and even some pleasure will never be forgotten.” “We were all so blessed for your services. We will be eternally grateful for the kindness, unbelievable service, concern, hospitality and warmth of everyone.”
