Palliative Care Service

Stony Brook Medicine's Palliative Care Service helps patients and their families cope with the physical, emotional and spiritual distress associated with a serious illness. A specialized team meets with the patient and family members during hospitalization to discuss their needs and assist in efforts to stabilize symptoms and support the care goals of the patient. The team, which includes specialists from medicine, nursing, social work, and pastoral care, focuses on a “whole person” approach in providing expert and compassionate care.
