Palliative Care

Palliative care is a program intended to maximize the quality of life during medical treatment.

Like hospice care, palliative care works to manage symptoms, control pain, and promote comfort. The primary goal of palliative care is to relieve and prevent the suffering of patients. Palliative care differs from hospice care in that it is used in conjunction with curative treatment. Our palliative care team works with the patient’s primary care physician to ensure that palliative and curative treatments work in harmony with each other to both speed recovery and enhance a person’s overall well-being.
