1 Maria Hall Dr.
Danville, PA 17821
Geisinger Columbia Montour Hospice at Maria Hall provides care for loved ones confronting a life-limiting diagnosis in a highly individualized and home-like setting.
Maria Hall is part of the peaceful, beautifully maintained grounds of St. Cyril and Methodius in Danville. Located on the fourth floor of Maria Hall, this “home away from home” focuses on maintaining a guest’s dignity and comfort while providing emotional and physical support to both the family and guest.
This “home away from home” is maintained collaboratively by Geisinger Columbia Montour Hospice and the Sisters of St. Cyril and Methodius. Non-denominational, it welcomes anyone in need of end-of-life care. Guests and their families are encouraged to find comfort through the addition of personal touches – such as a favorite chair, pictures or other belongings – to make their private suite as similar to their home environment as possible.
Care is provided by the hospice staff and volunteers, and can be supplemented by family and friends of the guest. As part of their mission, the Sisters of St. Cyril and Methodius provide the physical residence and housekeeping, prepare the meals, offer prayer support and welcome use of the chapel. The hospice staff defines appropriate physical and emotional care, collaborates with physician(s) to achieve optimal pain and symptom management, provides support during the final stage of life and ongoing bereavement services. Geisinger Columbia Montour Hospice strives to keep patients with progressive end-stage diseases at home, but this is not always possible or practical.
Geisinger Columbia Montour Hospice at Maria Hall simulates the at-home experience, not only for the guest, but also for family and friends. This “home away from home” is designed to provide care and comfort, similar to what could be experienced within the guest’s home, while lifting task burdens so that important shared time can be concentrated on the guest.
