We are committed to providing comprehensive, competent, quality care which addresses the physical, social, psychological and spiritual dimensions of care as an integrated whole, optimizes comfort and dignity and is consistent with the patient and family needs and goals, with the patient’s needs and goals as priorities.
In essence, we seek to maximize the quality of life of our patients, to provide comfort, preserve dignity and to keep them out of the emergency rooms as best as possible. Our priority is the patient and their family.
We recognize dying as a natural, inevitable process when curative therapy is no longer effective.
We seek neither to hasten nor prolong the dying process.
We believe that palliative care and sensitivity to individual needs will allow dying patients to have full and rewarding lives until death.
We support family and friends during the patient’s illness and assist them after the patient’s death through the bereavement program.
