Mount-Sinai Hospital has a long-term care unit with a palliative vocation, the only one in the region, for patients who have a reserved prognosis of 3 to 12 months. This program was implemented in 2015, as a result of the growing needs of our population for such services. It is open to all patients with a terminal disease, not limited to oncology patients, who can benefit from a palliative holistic approach.
All patients admitted for long term palliative care are taken care of by palliative care physicians, nursing staff, social workers, physiotherapists and occupational therapists who are qualified in providing this unique type of care. If you are interested, please contact your social worker who can refer to our social workers for further information. The admission process follows the regular long term care channel.
