The palliative care program at Poudre Valley Hospital helps patients with pain and symptom management, maintaining quality of life, difficult decision-making and advance directives.

This service is available to hospitalized patients only.

“We guide patients through the emotional roller coaster that comes with serious illness,” said Dr. Joseph Lopez. “We assist with medical management, clarifying goals of care and helping patients and families understand complex medical treatments while at PVH.”

For more information, ask your attending physician if a palliative medicine consult is right for you or your family member.
