Funds raised at this year’s gala will support the dedicated Palliative Care Unit at Highland. Palliative Care is a critical service that provides specialized care and support for patients who are experiencing chronic or terminal illness. In addition to treating physical needs, our team provides emotional support, is available to answer questions, helps coordinate care and treatment, identifies services for patients after their hospital stay, and helps family members who are coping with a patient’s illness. By creating a centralized unit, we can improve the quality and consistency of care.
