About Geriatrics & Palliative Care
Advancing the Art and Science of Compassionate Care
MetroHealth's palliative medicine specialists are committed to improving the care of the chronically ill or dying. Our goals are to help patients feel the best they can and maximize their quality of life, as well assist and support families and the teams who are caring for them.
We accomplish these goals by:
Helping healthcare teams provide care that complies with patients' wishes and minimizes suffering
Educating care providers, patients, and families about treatment choices and end-of-life care
Conducting research to learn more about the care that seriously ill or dying patients need and how best to provide it
Collaborating with home care agencies and hospices in the community as appropriate.
