Hospice care

The Potter County Hospice program at UPMC Cole has been dedicated to caring for terminal patients and their families since 1984. Our dedication to our patients is shown through our certification by Medicare and Medical Assistance and our Joint Commission accreditation. We have a medically-directed care services approach that provides physical, social, psychological and spiritual care for our patients and their families. Our care is provided by a team of professionals made up of physicians, registered nurses, home health aides, medical social workers and trained volunteers that meet regularly to keep our patients' treatment patient-centered and personalized.

Our mission and philosophy

Our philosophy here affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. We neither hasten nor postpone death.

Our mission is:

  • To provide high-quality care that meets the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of terminal patients and their families in Potter, McKean, and Tioga counties.
  • To enable terminal patients to experience comfort and death with dignity.
  • To provide bereavement care for surviving family members.
  • To provide education, information and support services in terminal care and related cases for health care professionals as well as the community at large.
