Mission Statement

Our Mission is to Provide Total Encompassing Support for Our Patients and Families During End of Life

Our goal is to achieve the best possible quality of care for patients and families. We will do everything in our power to relieve pain, control symptoms, prevent side effects and complications, and maintain the best quality of life possible.

When asked to name their greatest fear associated with death, respondents most cited "being a burden to family and friends," followed by "pain" and "lack of control."
