Dealing with cancer, as with any life-threatening disease, is physically and emotional trying for patients and their loved ones.
We offer programs and services specially designed to help meet the needs of everyone affected, and work to treat the whole person – not just the disease.
Additional Intermountain Services
Some patients may be able to receive treatment in their home to reduce the need for prolonged hospital stays or nursing home care.
Patients with a life-limiting illness may desire support services and comfort care rather than curative treatment. Hospice focuses on having a patient live life to the fullest with comfort and dignity. Patients are cared for by loved ones with the help of the hospice team.
Palliative medicine provides intensive interdisciplinary treatment of the pain and symptoms of serious illness. It focuses on the person, not just a specific disease.
