Palliative and Supportive Care at Denver Health

The Palliative Medicine Division at Denver Health provides care to patients while in the hospital and also in the outpatient setting. We specialize in medical care for people with serious or life threatening illnesses such as congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cancer, chronic liver disease, kidney failure, Alzheimer’sParkinson’s, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and many more. Our focus is to elevate quality of life by providing holistic patient-centered care that address the unique and changing needs throughout patients’ course of illness. Palliative and supportive care is appropriate at any age, at any stage in a serious illness, and can be provided along with curative treatments.

Inpatient

The palliative and supportive care team are consultants. They help in the care of hospitalized patients to provide an extra layer of support and expert symptom management. The primary care team caring for the patient or the patient and the family can request for the palliative and supportive care team to be involved and the help of a treatment plan.

Outpatient

The palliative and supportive care clinic provides continuity for the patients and families after discharge from the hospital. Patients do not have to be hospitalized to receive care at the outpatient clinic. If the patient has a serious or life threatening illness their health care provider can place a referral for the patient to be seen at the clinic.

Ancillary Services

  • Chaplaincy Services - Inpatient amenities include 24 hour access to the chaplaincy services. A clergy of your choice is always welcome to visit during your or your loved ones hospital stay. Outpatient amenities can include a dedicated chaplain for patients and families during their clinic visit.

  • Clinical Social Work - Social workers are to assist patients and families in dealing with the myriad issues that can arise from a serious or life threatening illness.
