Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, doulas (volunteer companions), and massage and yoga therapists provide medical treatment to improve quality of life during a serious illness. We treat symptoms like pain, make sure that patients and families are fully informed about their treatment choices, and help patients and families receive the care that they want and need inside and outside of the hospital. Palliative care does not replace a patient’s regular treatment but is added to it at any time during a patients’ illness but ideally from the time of diagnosis so that patients may be fully healed.
