CareFirst, formerly known as Southern Tier Hospice and Palliative Care, is a not-for-profit community-based program providing complete hospice, palliative care, and grief support services to residents of Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben counties of New York State.
Three interdisciplinary teams in Corning, Watkins Glen and Bath provide individualized care to patients and their families, primarily in the home.
Each team provides physician services, home care nursing, social work, spiritual care, grief services, and the assistance of trained volunteers. The team works in cooperation with the patient’s personal physician to provide compassionate professional care and support for patients and their families.
The mission of CareFirst has been consistent since its founding days. The entire staff is mission driven. Led by the Senior Management team and the Board of Directors, the strategic plan evolves to the growing needs of the community. Please view the testimonials from a cross section of the community.
