About The Johns Hopkins Hospital
The Johns Hopkins Palliative Medicine Program helps patients facing life-threatening illnesses and their families live the fullest lives they can, control pain, deal with the mental and emotional effects of a serious illness, and manage symptoms.
Each patient’s wishes are taken into account to provide options that will meet that patient’s needs and those of his or her family. Our team of doctors, advance practice nurses, nurses, social workers and chaplains provides compassionate and expert support to guide patients and their families as they cope with illness and the need to make difficult decisions.
The Palliative Medicine Program provides care for patients throughout the Johns Hopkins Health System, including The Johns Hopkins Hospital, intensive care units, progressive care units and outpatient clinics at Howard County General, Sibley Memorial and Suburban hospitals.
Program staff members work with staff at all Johns Hopkins member hospitals, as well as a number of hospices.
