Hospice and Palliative Medicine

WeCare Medical Associates is determined to be a resource for the evaluation and management of patients with end-of-life medical illnesses. To this regard, WeCare will work with the palliative and hospice programs in our community. Our patients with terminal conditions deserve respect, dignity, and compassion. No one deserves to have a painful ending.

Hospice and Palliative Medicine is a sub-specialty of medicine that focuses on symptom management, relief of suffering and end-of-life care. In 2006, hospice and palliative medicine was officially recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, and is co-sponsored by the American Boards of Internal Medicine, Anesthesiology, Family Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry and Neurology, Surgery, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Radiology, and Obstetrics and Gynecology.
