The Best Care Possible

It is said that “when one person gets a diagnosis, their family gets an illness.” Supportive Care is a patient- and family-centered approach to care that is appropriate for patients of any age and at any stage of a serious or chronic illness. The Supportive Care approach focuses not only on treating physical symptoms of disease and side effects of treatment, but also offers emotional, social and spiritual support to patients, caregivers and family. Supportive Care embraces the goals, values and wishes of patients and families, assisting individuals in determining what the best course of care looks like for them. Ultimately, the goal of Supportive Care is to help patients and families live as well as possible for as long as possible.

Getting Started with Supportive Care

Supportive Care is available to those living with a chronic, serious illness. Patients need a referral from a primary or specialty provider. Most insurances cover Supportive Care. Supportive care can be delivered in the hospital and at home by our team of healthcare professionals—which includes physicians, advanced practice providers, social workers and chaplains.
