The Inpatient Palliative Care service at MGH provides specialized, interdisciplinary care to patients with serious illness and their families. We care for patients admitted to the hospital with the aim of helping patients live as well as possible for as long as possible through expert symptom management and providing an extra layer of support for patients and families at any stage of a serious illness.
