Palliative Care

Providing comfort and symptom management


Our Palliative Care team provides specialized medical care for patients with serious, chronic and life-threatening illnesses. We focus on providing relief from symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness - whatever the diagnosis. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patients and their families and offer support as well.

Our care team includes a physician, nurse and social worker. It may involve spiritual counseling, psychological counseling, physical or occupational therapy, address dietitian needs, care depending upon the patient's needs.

Although pain management is a major part of palliative care, we offer help with other symptoms such as:
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Shortness of breath
  • Trouble sleeping
