Palliative Care

Offering Compassionate, Personalized Care

The Albany Med Health System's palliative care team offers compassionate and personalized care to patients at any stage of illness. Our teams coordinate across specialties to help our patients manage pain and the stress of a serious illness, and meet with patients and their families to discuss the benefits or risks of treatments and procedures. We want you to make informed decisions about the care and treatment that are right for you.

We offer complete medical, psychosocial and spiritual palliative care aimed at lessening your loved one's pain. Our goal is to help them manage symptoms and negative feelings while focusing on their quality of life. We also provide emotional support to the entire family during this time.

The Journeys program is Albany Medical Center's pediatric palliative care program, part of the Bernard & Millie Duker Children's Hospital.
