Palliative Care

Palliative care is specialized medical care that can improve the quality of life for a patient who is being treated for a serious illness.

At Banner Health, our palliative care program provides compassionate, comprehensive and interdisciplinary care that reduces suffering and optimizes quality of life by addressing physical, emotional and spiritual needs for patients and families experiencing serious illness.
