Why Choose Snowline
Snowline makes the hospice and
supportive care choice easy
The important decision to choose quality of life and a support provider is up to the patient, but often a recommendation by a doctor, hospital or nursing home is influential. The basic principals of Snowline make the hospice and supportive care choice easy.
- Since 1979, Snowline has been a mission-driven, community based non-profit offering patient-centered care with compassion and dignity to all who are clinically appropriate.
- Our first promise is to manage the pain and ensure the comfort of our patients.
- Snowline’s Medical Director, Dr. Jeanine Ellinwood, MD, is board certified in Internal Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Medicine, and takes an active role in the care of all Snowline patients..
- In times of crisis caused by pain or out-of-control symptoms, our promise is to provide continuous comfort care until the crisis is resolved.
- The legacy of Snowline is volunteerism. Our large and active volunteer base continues to grow, commit and add an immeasurable contribution to our patients, their families and the entire Snowline team.
- Snowline, in partnership with the Veteran’s Administration, has achieved the maximum Level 4 status in the We Honor Veterans initiative, reflecting our commitment to meeting the unique challenges facing veterans and their families.
- Snowline offers a rich variety of grief support programs for both children and adults, regardless of whether or not they had a loved one in hospice care.
- Snowline is Medicare certified and serves patients wherever they may live.
- Snowline offers same-day admission.
- Snowline’s thrift store and recycling center operations allow us to provide care not always covered by Medicare or insurance, including, but not limited to complementary therapies such as pet and harp.
We had visits from other Hospices at the skilled nursing home, but we decided on Snowline. I had no idea at the time how helpful you could be. The care Snowline provided was way beyond anything expected.
Now that Margie is in another place, I have a new life to organize, and will call to arrange grief counseling. I’m so sad, but Snowline has helped me through the most stressful part of my life.
