serve hospice patients?

A. No. JHCN works with all terminally

ill patients. This includes patients and
families still pursuing curative treat-
ment and those who are at the end f
life, but may not elect to use a hospice

the time of referral throughout the
treatment process. One of JHCN's
core values is its commitment to flexi-
bility and continuity of care.
