Palliative Care

Share this page:  

Donate Now The Palliative Care Service provides compassionate care for patients at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center who are facing serious or life-threatening illness.

Palliative Care emphasizes control of symptoms, extends beyond the familiar issues of pain and nausea, and is also vital to curative treatment for serious diseases. The patient who is helped with suffering in both body and spirit, has much more capacity to fight illness whether the illness is serious or lesser, temporary or ongoing, unstable or incurable.
