Pediatric Palliative Care

Pediatric Palliative care
 is specialized medical care for children with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness—whatever the diagnosis. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the child and the family. PHPCN is committed to improving access to hospice and palliative care for children and their families throughout Pennsylvania through education, advocacy and support of providers throughout our communities.
