How do I get palliative care? The best way is to ask your doctor if Palliative Care might help you, and ask for a referral. Our team sees patients both in the hospital, and in certain outpatient venues.
If you are hospitalized with a serious problem, your doctor can consult our team to be part of your care in the hospital.
If you are a patient seeing a specialist in the following practices, you can ask your doctor to refer you for a palliative care consult right there in that office. In the future, we hope to grow the number of outpatient locations that we can serve.
