  • "Your caring staff is so valuable to families during critical times. Your support is very comforting and appreciated. We are truly grateful."

  • "To the Hospice folks, words cannot express our thanks and appreciation for your tender touch and loving professionalism during our Dad's illness. We will always remember our nurse's expert skills and abilities as well as her personal touch. "

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.
