Palliative Care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It is focused on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stresses of a serious illness — whatever the diagnosis. Palliative care is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided along with curative treatment.
Our physicians and nurse practitioners will work with a patient's other doctors to provide extra care and support. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family.
