Our commitment to keeping you safe

Palliative care at Children’s Health℠ focuses on helping children with complicated health problems while in the hospital or at clinic visits. We give extra support to children with difficult-to-treat diseases. And because each child is unique, we offer customized care that changes as their illness changes.
Managing multiple complicated medical diagnoses, specialists, prescriptions, procedures and events can feel challenging. When you’re trying to understand your child’s complex health conditions while also making decisions and supporting your child emotionally, our Pediatric Palliative & Hospice Care team can help light the way. We’re here to listen, brainstorm solutions and help share the load.
Our Palliative & Hospice Care team can also help you and your child manage difficult symptoms, such as pain, constipation, nausea and anxiety. We have expertise helping children with medical complexity struggling with lifelong symptoms like these.
Occasionally, children with complex medical issues also carry terminal prognoses. In these cases, the palliative care team can be engaged to ensure that patients and their families are well supported in these extraordinarily difficult circumstances.
At Children’s Health, our team has diverse professional backgrounds in social work, pediatrics and nursing. We work hard to build trusting, strong relationships with our patients and their families.
