Physician staffing expands palliative care support

25 Sep 2022

Geographic constraints removed for cancer patients

By: Larissa Smith, MBA, adult hospitalists manager

With improved physician staffing, we’re pleased to announce our scope of services will be increased to patients who are:

  • Hospitalized for primary advanced cancer diagnosis;
  • Require symptom management related to malignant disease;
  • In the NTCU with life-limiting illness; and
  • Receiving intensive level of care or patients with the TRACS team as their attending provider.

This change removes previous geographic constraints for patients with primary advanced cancer diagnosis. The Palliative Care Team thanks you for your understanding and support as we build a strong palliative service to support you and the patients we serve.
