The Palliative Care Program provides comprehensive and compassionate care to patients with conditions that do not respond to curative therapies but who still need management for pain and other symptoms.
Different from hospice, patients receive treatment (radiation, chemotherapy, etc.) to control their disease even though it may not be responsive to care.
The program also addresses the patient's emotional, spiritual and practical goals. The patient's family members may also receive assistance with bereavement and other needs.
For information and referral, please call (310) 319-5112.
