Services & Centers

Palliative Care

Palliative care focuses on helping relieve pain, as well as symptoms and stress of chronic or serious life-limiting illnesses. Patients will receive treatment for pain and other symptoms, in addition to treatment options for their illness. Our palliative care team, which includes medical social workers, is available to help patients and their families with community resources and support. We are available to assess whether you need palliative care and can begin your care during your stay in the hospital. Once you are home from the hospital, we can continue to provide you palliative care in your home as well.
