COVID-19: We Are Here For You

(Updated 4/2/2020)

Social Distancing Does Not Mean Social Disconnection

Dear Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice families and partners,

As you know, our healthcare community at large is currently facing one of the most difficult challenges of our times. The COVID-19 outbreak has shown our community and the world how vulnerable but also how strong we can be.

During these past weeks, our care teams and administrative staff have been working hard to adjust continuously to new restrictions and developments. We have been creative and forward thinking in order to give continuity to our essential work, while supporting our patients and their families at this unprecedented crisis in our community.

The upcoming weeks and months will put extra pressure on our staff and resources as we see a sharp increase of COVID-19 cases in the community. At the same time, there are still hundreds of patients facing other life-limiting diseases and end-stage conditions that require skilled and compassionate care. Our patients remain at the heart of our service as we navigate and adapt to growing needs for precautionary safety measures – at our own Casey House, as well as other facilities.

As circumstances change, we will continue to collaborate with our community partners by supporting one another in providing skilled comfort care and protecting the well-being of our collective staff.

As a reminder, Montgomery Hospice & Prince George’s Hospice is and always will be, an essential business, as designated by the Maryland Department of Health. Our doctors, nurses, and the rest of our care teams will continuously work to provide comfort and gentle the journey for our patients and their families, wherever they may need our services. Social distance does not mean social disconnection – we are here for you.

Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your loved ones and allowing us to continue gentling the journey for Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.
