Age groups served
The division is sub-divided into two complementary services.
The Marjorie & Gerald Bronfman Division of Palliative Care
This unit specializes in care for patients with complex needs and difficult symptom management. The team includes physicians, nurses, music and art therapists, social workers, psychologists, pastoral care workers, volunteers and other allied health professionals. Amenities include a large family room with a small kitchenette, a kosher kitchen, family bathroom equipped with a shower, and a therapeutic spa for patients. Each room can accommodate a recliner-bed for overnight stays.
Supportive Care Team
The Supportive Care Team is comprised of a palliative care nurse consultant and a team of family physicians who respond to requests for palliative care consults made by other units within the Jewish General Hospital. In addition, the palliative care consult physicians provide both specialized oncology and palliative care to patients in a variety of oncology out-patient clinics: pulmonary, gynecology, medical, and radiation.
Referrals to Palliative/Supportive care are made through the patient’s treating physician.
