Abraham House is the only comfort care home that exists within the 3 counties of Oneida, Madison, and Herkimer. Between Abraham House and Seigenthaler Center (run by Hospice and Palliative Care, Inc.), only 6 beds are available to serve the needs of the terminally ill from our local communities. Couple that with the need for hospice care increasing due to aging baby boomers, and our services are in growing demand.
Abraham House is interested in expanding to add an additional location to help address this rising need. Rome Mayor Jacqueline Izzo is focused on bringing programs to Rome so that Romans do not need to travel to other communities to access needed services. Rome Memorial Hospital President and CEO David Lundquist is dedicated to providing patients with continuum of care to address their individual healthcare needs. Working together, we believe Abraham House Rome could be a reality in 2 years.
