Pegasus House Palliative Care Program
Located within the Peconic Bay Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, PBMC's Pegasus House Palliative Care Center is an eight-bed specialized unit dedicated to offering an enhanced level of pain-relief and compassionate care to patients facing challenging health issues, in the comfort of a family-friendly setting.
Not limited to hospice care patients, Palliative Care can be provided to anyone across any disease spectrum. In order for a patient to qualify for palliative care, a patient should have a chronic illness or an acute illness that causes that patient or his or her family to suffer.
The Palliative Care Program seeks to ease pain and suffering while providing the best possible quality of life for patients afflicted with chronic or life-limiting illnesses. It embraces the patient's family, because not only are family members key to providing care and comfort to the patient, but also they are in need of care and comfort themselves.
