Palliative Care

Living with serious illness can bring overwhelming challenges, but under the right care, people can still live comfortably and fully. Fortunately, Franciscan offers special care called palliative care to patients throughout the Puget Sound region of Washington.

Palliative care can take place in the comfort of home (outreach program) or in a hospital (palliative medicine), depending on the best course for treatment and care discussed by you, your family and physician. The most important factor is that Franciscan Palliative Care goes where the patient needs it.
