A Pediatric Palliative Care Program

The CHOICES Pediatric Palliative Care Program is a consultative service that is available as an extra layer of support to children with complex medical needs who are affected by life-threatening or life-altering medical conditions, as well as their families.

Pediatric Palliative Care is intended to improve quality of life for children with chronic and acute conditions as well as those receiving end-of-life care. Our team works alongside a child’s current medical teams to provide additional specialized supportive care.  

Pediatric palliative care can help children at any stage of a serious illness, including at the time of diagnosis. This care is available from the prenatal stage of development into early adulthood. To receive pediatric palliative care services, your child’s doctor may provide a referral or a parent or guardian may request one.
