About Us

The Community Hospice is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Program.  We are part of St. Peter's Health Partners, and are privileged to work with every hospital in the region to provide hospice services.  We serve more than 4,300 seriously ill patients and their families a year.

The elderly, terminally ill and dying are among the most vulnerable people in our society. Incredible advances in medical care and social services haven’t ended the tragedy of people dying alone or in pain.

Meeting that need is our mission:

The Community Hospice serves seriously ill people and their families during the process of dying and grieving.  We enhance quality of life with comprehensive, compassionate services that respect the dignity of those we serve.

And we offer that help and comfort in eight counties in upstate New York: Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Columbia, Greene, Montgomery and Washington.
