The Steward Center for Palliative Care utilizes a nationally recognized model which sets the “gold standard” for excellence in the provision of palliative services in our community. Our model of care ensures maximum benefit for patients who have been diagnosed with a serious, progressive illness like CHF, COPD, kidney disease, cancer or dementia by using best practice standards for care, adhering to national quality standards and implementing strategies to follow patients throughout the continuum of their care. This evidence based, multidisciplinary approach integrates your current team of specialist and primary care physicians to treat and manage symptoms within the four corners of wellness: physical, social, psychological and spiritual. A wealth of evidence demonstrates that palliative care improves quality of life and helps those living with a serious illness to live longer, especially when it is a fixture throughout the continuum of a patient’s care.
