Supportive & Palliative Care Service

Care During Serious Illness

Enloe's Supportive and Palliative Care Service is a natural expression of the medical center's mission to improve the quality of your life through patient-centered care. It is available with a physician referral for inpatients at Enloe Medical Center.

For Any Age, At Any Stage

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It provides relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of serious illness, whatever the diagnosis.

This type of care is appropriate for any age, at any stage of the illness, and can be provided together with curative treatment. Involving our Supportive and Palliative Care team does not mean you have to stop treatment.

At Enloe, palliative care is provided by an interdisciplinary team, including physicians, nurse practitioners, social work, a chaplain and nurses to address your needs as a whole person. Services are tailored to you and your family. Our team can:

  • Advise and assist with symptoms caused by your disease or treatment such as pain, nausea, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, constipation, and emotional distress.
  • Provide resources for you and your family at times of illness, transition or loss.
  • Assist with advance care planning and decision-making for complex medical illness.
  • Help family members provide support to you and to each other.
