Palliative Care & Pain Management

With the evolution of modern medicine, there is no need for any patient to experience undue pain. The staff of The Steeplechase Cancer Center will manage patients’ pain as part of its comprehensive treatment plan. Pain specialists are available and are part of the multidisciplinary team.

Palliative care focuses on making patients comfortable by addressing the issues that are causing physical or emotional pain. The goal of palliative care is to improve patients’ quality of life and support them and their families during and after treatment. The clinical team works closely with services such as home care and hospice to meet the needs of patients.
