Connect Sooner. Live Better.
Palliative Care is the medical team-based specialty focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative Care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, social workers and other specialists that works together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided along with curative treatment.
We are proud to partner with Southeast Georgia Health System at the Brunswick Campus to deliver Palliative Care services. In coordination with your Attending Physician, our Palliative Care team, including a physician, nurse practitioner and nurse navigator, provides care for patients in the hospital setting and at an outpatient clinic located in the Southeast Georgia Health System Outpatient Care Center (OCC) two days a week. Additionally, our Palliative Care team makes services available to patients in local nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Click here to learn more about our Palliative Care services.
