Palliative Care Services
Palliative Care Services is Chattanooga area's leading provider of Palliative Care, which is ongoing treatment throughout a serious illness, without a terminal diagnosis. 'Palliative care' is pretty new as a medical specialty and is not to be confused with hospice.
Our team serves patients who are struggling with advanced chronic illness and complex medical conditions with a goal of helping to improve the quality of life so that you can live each day to the fullest. Some of the more frequent disease we see in patients choosing palliative care are people with cancer, COPD, possibly Alzheimer's, as well as congestive heart failure and kidney failure.
As a PCS patient we will help you manage your symptoms, provide you with disease-specific education and always talk with you about your goals from the care we provide. We also provide you with a social worker to help you navigate your way through community resources and give emotional support for not only the patient but caregivers too.
We are very excited to announce we have a new, more centrally located clinic across the street from Erlanger Hospital.
