About our palliative care services

At HCA Florida Bayonet Point Palliative Care, we provide those with serious or chronic illness care that optimizes quality of life by preventing and managing suffering.

What is palliative care?

Palliative care is not the same as hospice care. It does not serve only the patients who are at end of life. Instead, palliative care aims to help patients with chronic illnesses live with those conditions by focusing on improving their quality of life.

Diseases that are commonly treated by palliative care specialists include cancer, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and Alzheimer's, among others.

What does palliative care do?

  • Provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms
  • Enhances quality of life, and may also positively influence the course of illness
  • Integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care
  • Offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible throughout the course of an illness
  • Is applicable early in the course of illness, in conjunction with other therapies that are intended to cure an illness or prolong life, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgical procedures

Who needs palliative care?

Any one of the millions suffering from a chronic illness would benefit from ongoing palliative care to enhance their quality of life.
