Palliative Care

Hospice Connections

Hospice is an important Medicare benefit (also most insurances have a hospice benefit) that provides care to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients who have less than 6 months to live. Patients who receive hospice care are also no longer receiving curative treatment for their underlying disease. 

Our Supportive and Palliative Care program coordinates with all the local hospices and can help with the coordination if hospice care is need for our patients.
