Palliative Care is medical care designed to care for patients with a chronic or serious illness. At Mercy Health - St Rita’s, our palliative care team is led by a medical director and certified palliative care nurses who work together with other health professionals to create a patients’ plan that focuses on pain and symptom management. This interdisciplinary approach also provides education about medical issues, advanced care planning and treatment options. There is no extra charge for a palliative care consultation. Palliative care is another way we continue to support our Mission of providing compassionate care while respecting the sacredness of life.
