Palliative Care

What we do

Palliative Care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life threatening illness. This is achieved through prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification, impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.
