CHC – The Cancer & Hematology Centers

Palliative Care

The goal of our palliative care team is to improve the quality of life by preventing or relieving pain and suffering, whether it is physical, mental, or emotional.

Specially trained, our team works with you and your family to understand your values, needs, and treatment preferences. Decisions about the care and treatment you receive happen more smoothly with our team on your side.

It is easy to confuse palliative care and hospice care. Delivery of palliative care can occur at any point in your treatment – including at the end of life. Hospice care happens when an illness is incurable. Whereas hospice care is usually delivered in the home or a hospice facility, palliative care may be offered in any environment.
