About HCN

HCN is a not-for-profit hospice organization that has served patients and families in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens Counties with care and compassion since 1988. HCN utilizes an approach that cares for the total person, addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their families. Care is provided by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, home health aides, dieticians, pastoral care providers and bereavement counselors. A member of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, HCN is committed to the highest quality care and is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations as meeting the highest standards expected in the field. Please visit for more information on our organization and the services we provide to our patients, families and the community.

...of caring

Meg Walsh loved the good things in life; she was a faith-filled woman who enjoyed cooking for her family, gardening and singing with the St. John's University Choir. In 1994, Meg was diagnosed with breast cancer. Seven years later, the cancer spread to her bones, and when Hospice Care Network at Franklin opened in 2002 she became one of the center's first patients. Meg truly made her room at the hospice and palliative care center her home. She surrounded herself with the things that made her smile: dozens of family photos, cards, flowers, knickknacks and her beloved teapot collection. Her husband Bob was by her side every day, and most days at least one of their five children, their young granddaughter or friends visited with Meg at her "home away from home."

Care Outside The Home

There are times when a patient with an advanced illness may not be able to receive care in their own home, whether it is because their particular pain and symptom management needs require a more technically advanced setting or because their caregiver is unable to facilitate their care. HCN believes that these patients' special needs should not preclude them from the special care hospice provides, and so is actively developing new options that allow patients to receive expert hospice and palliative care in settings that feel more like home. In 2002 HCN opened Hospice Care Network at Franklin, the first hospice and palliative care center in Nassau County, through a unique collaboration with Franklin Hospital Medical Center, another member of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System. Located within Franklin Hospital Medical Center, Hospice Care Network at Franklin offers patients and their families all the comforts of home ­ private rooms, comfortable parlors for respite time, unlimited visiting and sleep-in accommodations ­ combined with round-theclock expert hospice and palliative care.

"I can't say enough about the extraordinary staff at HCN at Franklin. They are professionally competent, compassionate, caring people who were always there with answers to our questions and support when we needed it." ~ Bob Walsh

Since its opening in June 2002, Hospice Care Network at Franklin has earned a 100 percent patient and family satisfaction rate, and was even called the "Ritz Carlton of hospices" in a patient satisfaction letter. Due to the success of Hospice Care Network at Franklin, in 2003 HCN will open the Hospice Inn at Huntington, a 17-bed freestanding hospice unit with the warmth and comfort of a country inn.


...of compassion

On March 7, 2002, the Farmiloe family received tragic news: their beloved 22-year-old niece Jennifer had been killed in a car accident. Having lived with them for several years after the death of her own mother when she was a young child, Jennifer was like a daughter to JoAnn and Joseph Farmiloe and like a sister to their two children, Brianna, 9 and Zack, 6. The family was devastated. A friend recommended they contact HCN's Bereavement Department for help in contending with the tragedy, and one year later, the family says it was the best decision they could have made. HCN worked with each member of the family to help them cope with the loss of Jennifer - JoAnn and Joseph began individual bereavement counseling and the children joined the Tiny Hearts and High Hopes groups. HCN's Bereavement Program helped them work through their grief, so they can now say the name "Jennifer" and think of happy memories they will always have.

Community Commitment

HCN's commitment to the community does not end at providing care to patients with advanced illness ­ it is continually evolving to extend care and comfort to new members of our ever-changing population. As part of this commitment, in 2002 HCN's award-winning Bereavement Department provided care to hundreds of children and adults through its counseling services, many of whom had no prior affiliation with our hospice program. The Bereavement Department also conducts seminars and programs with businesses, schools and houses of worship on a regular basis to educate these members of our community on coping with grief and loss. Members of HCN's clinical staff actively work within their communities of care, whether it is by sponsoring a patient and family for the holidays or identifying and reaching out to underserved populations such as children, the developmentally impaired and those with cardiac disease.

"Hospice took us right in and took very good care of us. They really listened and gave us the tools we needed to help us heal." ~ JoAnn Farmiloe

HCN continues to identify and develop new ways to build and strengthen community ties for the future, such as the Marks Center for Caregivers, formed through a generous gift from Board of Trustees Member Cynthia Marks and her husband George. The Marks Center for Caregivers will provide education, services and support to caregivers as they assist their loved ones in managing the advanced illness experience.


...of life.

In the fourth month of Chris Nugent's pregnancy, her unborn baby was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 and a hypoplastic left heart, a genetic condition that doctors expected would take the child's life within days after birth. At the time of diagnosis, the Nugents were not aware of the support and services available to them. Then Chris Nugent was introduced to Mary Gravina, director of HCN's Pediatric Hospice Program. The family began receiving "hospice in the womb" and HCN helped them develop a birth plan that would allow the entire family and their friends to be present in the hospital on the day of the baby's birth. "Amazing Grace" came into the world July 26, 2002 and HCN helped the Nugents bring her home and keep her comfortable as she defied the odds to live 62 days. Grace's two sisters continue to attend counseling through HCN's Children's Bereavement Program.

Pediatric Hospice

Pediatric Hospice is a small but important program within HCN that serves patients diagnosed with life-limiting advanced illness from before birth through the age of 18. Pediatric patients represent some of HCN's most unique and challenging cases, often coming to us with rare genetic syndromes or diseases that may affect one in every ten thousand people. Through its Pediatric Hospice Program, HCN develops an individualized plan of care designed to maintain each child within his or her home and community and to promote the goals of achieving developmental milestones and maintaining quality of life. The program also provides bereavement outreach to the child's family and community, including school, religious and social groups. HCN's Pediatric Hospice Team is comprised of speciallytrained pediatric professionals, including physicians, nurses, social workers, pastoral counselors and aides, as well as a child-life specialist and art therapist who utilizes creativity to help children understand and cope with their illness. In 2002, HCN enlisted respected Pediatric Intensive Care Specialist Dr. Scott Klein to serve as medical consultant to the Pediatric Hospice Program, bringing to the team his broad pediatric expertise and understanding of how hospice can help families during this difficult time in their lives. Additional milestones achieved include securing seats on Schneider Children's Hospital's Tumor Board and Palliative Care Board, with a goal of becoming as involved as possible in the care of children with advanced illness.

"Hospice helped us to appreciate every moment we had with Grace. Because of the care and support we received, we never gave up on her." ~ Chris Nugent


A Message from the Chief Executive Officer

Having spent more than 25 years working in the fields of hospice and home health care, I have seen time and time again the impact our care has on patients and their families. Nothing is more rewarding than knowing you have made a true difference in someone's life when they need it most: when they or a loved is diagnosed with an advanced illness. It is the hospice philosophy to care for the entire person ­ their physical, emotional and spiritual needs ­ and to support their loved ones. At HCN, we continually look for ways to expand on that philosophy. We are not content to follow the status quo. For example, nearly forty percent of our patient population has a caregiver that is elderly or compromised, which can make the difficulties of caring for a loved one all the more difficult. To address this important issue, we have established The Marks Center for Caregivers through a generous donation from Board of Trustees Member Cynthia Marks and her husband George to provide support that goes beyond the typical scope of hospice care to offer early caregiver education, extra hours of personal care aide time and transportation to visit loved ones in any of our inpatient facilities. Essentially, our minds are always on ensuring that our patients and their families receive the best customer service there is. In this annual report you met three families who have benefited from HCN's care and support in different ways. Each of their stories, along with the experiences of the many others who write and call to express their appreciation for all HCN did for them in their time of need, were made possible in part by the support you have given our organization through the years. Know that through your commitment to HCN and the special gifts you have to offer, you have been an angel to someone in need. Maureen Hinkelman

A Message from the Chairman of the Board

2002 was a very busy and exciting year for all of us at the Hospice Care Network and 2003 promises to bring even more challenges for a program that currently serves over 300 patients and their families each day. Working together, the staff and Board has successfully built upon the program to enhance service while also turning our eyes to the future to develop new, innovative programs for our patients and their families. In June on the South Shore we opened our inpatient Hospice and Palliative Care Center at Franklin Hospital Medical Center. This dedicated 12 patient wing is a huge success and has been embraced by the community and staff. We've also worked hard to negotiate additional care facilities in our community. I am pleased to announce that later this year we will be opening The Hospice Inn at Huntington, a 17-bed facility in Melville just off the Long Island Expressway. Additionally, our ongoing search and dream for a piece of property to build a freestanding 24-bed facility has been answered. Through the generosity of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System we will be developing a parcel of land on the campus of North Shore University Hospital at Manhasset. These facilities when completed will make hospice available to all families in need in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens. As we celebrate our 15th year, it is important to remember that none of these endeavors which service our community so well would be possible without the support of our friends and volunteers and the dedication and vision of our staff and board. To all of you, I offer my thanks for your friendship and caring. John King
