If you or a loved one are living with a serious illness such as heart failure or cancer, you may be considering palliative care to ensure the comfort, wellness, and continued care of the sick person from the time of diagnosis and beyond. When choosing palliative care centers, it’s important to find physicians who are compassionate, available, and dedicated to putting your loved one’s needs front and center.
The palliative care doctors at Pittsburgh Health Partners are passionate about providing comprehensive, hands-on care for patients who are living with serious illnesses. When you opt for our palliative care services, you or your loved one will spend as much one-on-one time with your palliative care specialist as you need to be truly cared for.

We proudly provide home visits, allowing us to become a part of you and your loved ones’ routine and assist patients whose mobility is limited.
