Among those we treat are people dealing with significant life-limiting diagnoses such as emphysema, congestive heart failure, or cancer.
Those conditions may bring them to the hospital frequently and raise important questions for them about their priorities.
Are they seeking comfort care?
Are they trying to prolong life at any cost?
Or are they simply looking for the best quality of life?
The Palliative Care team is here to help patients address these questions to ensure that we are meeting patients’ expectations and providing the care they desire. This program is not funded through insurance programs.
