If your child faces a serious illness, nothing is more important to you than easing their pain and keeping them comfortable. At Levine Children's Hospital, our palliative care team is focused exclusively on maintaining your child's comfort and well-being.

Our team – made up of palliative care doctors, care coordinators, social workers and staff – is dedicated to offering care and treatment that minimizes your child's suffering. At any point in your child's treatment, palliative care can be combined with other treatment therapies to focus on living life as fully as possible.
