To assist cancer patients in providing relief from the symptoms and stress of their illness, the MemorialCare Todd Cancer Institute hosts a Palliative Care Clinic on Friday mornings. Our team of specialists includes board-certified physicians, nurses, spiritual care providers and social workers, who work together with your oncologist to minimize the physical, mental, and emotional symptoms and stress that come with a serious illness.
Palliative care is provided at any stage of cancer, along with chemotherapy, radiation, and other curative treatments. Pain and other symptoms affect a patient’s quality of life, and stress can have a big impact on a patient and their family’s mental capacity, including coping with the diagnosis. Studies have shown that mental wellness can have an impact on treatment and outcomes. Our palliative care team can help patients navigate through this.
To make an appointment, call (562) 933-1877.
The clinic is in the Todd Cancer Pavilion, which is located at 2810 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90806.
