Pediatric Palliative Care
Pediatric palliative care is dedicated to improving the lives of children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Our mission is to partner with patients and their families to enhance quality of life through pain and symptom management as well as psychosocial and spiritual care using a patient- and family-centered care philosophy.
Pain and Symptom Management
Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital and Vitas Palliative Care Solutions have established an interdisciplinary team of experienced, compassionate professionals who are committed to relieving suffering and helping patients and families achieve optimum quality of life through difficult times. The Pediatric Palliative Care team works with the child's physician team and caregivers to provide treatment and guidance around issues of pain and symptom management in a sensitive, caring manner.
