Welcome to the Georgia Hospice and Palliative Care Organization!

 


Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, Hospice focuses on caring not curing and hospice involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Support is provided to the patient’s loved ones as well.

 

Because palliative care is not a place, it may be difficult to locate a provider of this kind of care in your geographic area. We are gathering a simple directory that lists the name and contact information for palliative care providers throughout the state of Georgia. These providers may be hospitals, outpatient clinics or cancer centers and they have developed a formal palliative care program based on national standards of palliative care.
