PALLIATIVE CARE SERVICES

Peninsula Regional Medical Center and Coastal Hospice have collaborated to provide palliative care services for patients at the Medical Center. The multidisciplinary team consists of a physician, a nurse, social workers and pastoral counselors who focus on pain and symptom control, management of spiritual issues and grief/bereavement support.

The palliative care team provides improved relief of their patients' physical, spiritual and emotional pain, and they assist their patients and families with difficult decision making. The goal of palliative care is to help the patient achieve the best possible quality of life and to alleviate as much pain and suffering as possible.
