Know you need help but not ready for hospice? Call us – our palliative care program is here to close the gap. Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Through Palliative Care we offer three separate programs designed to meet the needs of our patients.
Care in our Transitions Program is provided by a specially-trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided along with curative treatment. Learn More

“The peace of mind HopeWest gives me is huge, said Mike, HopeWest Palliative Care patient. The team helps me and my wife, my caregiver. I worry less because I know she can get answers and support from the team too.”
For Mike, the Living With Cancer program not only helps comfort his physical symptoms but also eases the burden and worry he has for his family. Mike also credits his HopeWest team for the ability to get to know him on a personal level and help him work through the many emotions that couple his complex illness.
Through the ups and downs of his illness, Mike remains grateful for every day he is able to spend with his family. He says he will continue to “fight until there is no fight left” as long as he has the support of his wife, family and the HopeWest Living with Cancer program.
