St. Alexius Expands Services To Offer Palliative Care

Starting May 1, St. Alexius is pleased to offer a palliative care program for patients who are hospitalized at the Medical Center.

Palliative care is provided by a team of physicians, nurses, social workers and chaplains who work with a patient’s other physicians to provide an extra layer of support including but not limited to symptom and pain management, education and spiritual services. Palliative Care treats people suffering from serious or chronic illnesses. Patients do not have to be in hospice or at the end of life to receive care.
