The Outpatient Palliative Care Program

The Outpatient Palliative Care Program strengthens the continuum of services provided by The Valley Hospital, Valley Home Care and Valley Medical Group. The outpatient program transitions former inpatients to outpatient services in addition to serving as an entry point into palliative care for those patients with chronic, progressive medical problems such as CHF, COPD and cancer. The program is overseen by Valley’s Outpatient Medical Director of Palliative Medicine.

At Valley’s Luckow Pavilion in Paramus, outpatient services are delivered by a physician and/or advanced practice nurse, in collaboration with a social worker, pharmacist and, when appropriate, a chaplain, who are trained to help palliative care patients. Some patients who are receiving ongoing outpatient treatment at Valley will be automatically referred for a palliative care consultation. However, any patient or family member who is considering outpatient palliative care can ask their physician for a referral to the program or may call 201-634-5699 directly to request a consultation.

In addition, Valley Home Care offers palliative care services to patients directly in their homes. For more information, please call 201-291-6233.
