Summary of Services Provided

When you have a serious illness, you may experience distressing symptoms that can make it difficult to live the life you want. Palliative care is care that supports you and your loved ones through the challenges that come with managing a serious illness. Palliative care is not the same as hospice or end-of-life care. Your serious illness doesn’t have to be life threatening in order for you to get palliative care. Palliative care is designed to improve your quality of life through symptom management and emotional support. You can receive palliative care at the same time as you receive chemotherapy, radiation, dialysis, physical therapy, surgery or other medical treatments. Our palliative care team works alongside the doctor or specialist who is already caring for you to help provide symptom relief and support services while you’re receiving treatment. No matter your diagnosis, our experienced team is here to help you find comfort and identify what matters most in terms of your health care.

No matter where you are, we can connect you with palliative care. For the convenience of our patients, we provide palliative care in clinics where you receive specialty care, like neurology or cardiology. We also offer palliative care in our hospitals. And if your illness makes it difficult to visit your care team, we can send the care team to you or provide a telehealth visit. Whether you’re at home, a transitional care center, a nursing home or an assisted living facility, our team of doctors and nurse practitioners can see you there.
