Palliative Care at Packard

Patient-centered care is the heart and soul of Packard Health and so we are thrilled to be able to provide palliative care to our patients with life-limiting diseases. It’s a standout example of how a small and nimble community health center (that’s us) can respond quickly to provide new services that patients need.

For our patients living with serious illness, April provides specialized care to relieve symptoms and stress. She is a skilled listener and advocate for patients and their families, and their expert communicator with all members of the care team.
