What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is innovative, physician-driven, specialized medical care for people with a serious illness. Palliative care focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of their chronic condition.
Our goal is to improve quality of life for the patient and their family. Our compassionate palliative care team works closely with your primary care physician to offer consultative services with patient-centered choices.
