Compassionate End-of-Life and Bereavement Care

Compassionate End-of-Life and Bereavement Care

COVID-19 has changed how we offer some of our services, but support is still available.

At Atlantic Health System, our mission is to design and deliver high-quality, innovative, personalized – but most of all compassionate – health care.

When patients confront severe and terminal illnesses, our mission doesn’t change. We work to improve the lives of our patients and their loved ones and caregivers, helping them manage their care, live life to the fullest extent possible, and meet their challenges with comfort and dignity.

Our programs offer medical and emotional support both to our patients and their loved ones who are living with illness or are bereaved.

We have programs designed for specific needs, and programs that are more generalized. If you or a loved one are struggling with illness or loss, please reach out to us.
