We are here when serious or terminal illness impacts you and your family. Experience comprehensive, comforting care and support plus precious peace of mind, knowing you have a full spectrum of medically-directed resources at your convenience.
While Hospice Care (end-of-life care) includes Palliative Care, Palliative Care may be provided at any stage of a serious cancer or non-cancer illness — and alongside prescribed medical treatment. Palliative Care not only assists those who are nearing end of life or are enrolled in Hospice, but attends to the emotional, spiritual and practical needs of both patients and those close to them.
In addition to managing symptoms, treating discomfort and relieving the stress of serious illness, our approach incorporates psychosocial and spiritual care with consideration of your preferences, values, beliefs and culture. The goal is to provide maximum levels of comfort and quality of life for you and your family.
A multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, social workers, integrated therapists and other professionals are here for you. They are specially trained and ready to work with attending physicians. Meet our Palliative Care physicians:
