Sharp Grossmont Hospital
Palliative Care Services at Sharp Grossmont Hospital
Caring for patients with chronic or debilitating illnesses.
Palliative care is as much a philosophy as it is a method for delivery of care. At Sharp Grossmont, we aim to provide care for patients by relieving suffering and offering support for the best quality of life, regardless of disease stage, age or need for other therapies — all without incurring further costs to the patient.
Palliative care is especially helpful for patients dealing with cancer, heart conditions, liver failure, renal failure, Alzheimer's disease, spinal cord injuries and other chronic conditions.
Our palliative care team is here for you.
At Sharp Grossmont Hospital, our expert palliative care team — including our medical director, RN case manager, social worker and chaplain — works together with you, your family and your physician to address any physical, psychological, spiritual and practical burdens of illness. We focus on managing your symptoms with peace and dignity, along with any life-prolonging treatments you may need.
We're here to help you navigate this journey — every step of the way.
