Our inpatient palliative care program is accessible hospital-wide. A team of nurse practitioners, registered nurses, chaplains, and social workers are available to assist those who experience chronic illnesses. Palliative care provides symptom management, works toward goals of care, and provides support for loved-ones. When treatment options become complex, a dedicated team can be of benefit. The team will help to address pain and provide ethical guidance in decision-making. Our team works with your doctor to provide the best possible care.
