WVU Medicine’s palliative medicine and hospice services provide patient and family-centered care that offers improved quality of life for patients with life-limiting illnesses by anticipating, preventing, and treating suffering. No matter your age or stage of your illness, we work closely with you and your doctors to help you navigate your healthcare and understand your treatment options.

Our caring team is comprised of board-certified palliative medicine and hospice physicians, nurses, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians, speech therapists, chaplains, and pharmacists committed to provide high-quality care.
