Welcome to The Iowa Clinic Palliative Care Department. When you or a loved one are facing a serious or chronic illness, a specialized interdisciplinary team can work with you to address physical, emotional and spiritual needs that can become increasingly complex as an illness progresses. Our top priorities are to relieve symptoms and stress, help you understand your illness and treatment options, and improve quality of life for you and your family.
The Iowa Clinic Difference
Our Palliative Care team will work together with all of your healthcare providers to ensure you receive the necessary support when making the important, and often difficult decisions about your healthcare.
The Iowa Clinic has the ability to quickly refer internally, allowing for more timely appointments and responses to a request for Palliative Care. Initiating these type of services early in an illness ensures you receive the care that is in line with your goals and wishes.
In addition, your care can be coordinated across various healthcare settings including outside of a hospital. This will allow you to be able to manage your life along with your illness.
