PMC at Home

Our multidisciplinary care team visits patients in their homes and offers individualized treatment plans centered on improving their quality of life.

  • Our trained team of doctors, nurse practitioners,
    social workers, and chaplains – in partnership
    with your doctor – provide an extra layer of
    guidance and support to patient and caregivers.

  • Our at-home care addresses the physical,
    psychosocial, and spiritual effects of living with
    a serious illness – such as managing difficult
    symptoms, stress, and the emotional discomfort
    that patients and families may experience.

  • Our patients can focus on their goals of care and curative treatments while our team supports
    them every step of the way.

PMC can also be provided in one of our Medical Offices or via Telehealth.

PMC Kids

Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for each child and their family, as defined by the wishes and priorities of the child and family. We provide compassionate patient and family-centered care – the PMC Kids team includes the child and family in the decision-making process regarding services and treatment choices to the fullest degree that is possible and desired.

We provide families with resources and work together to include the values, goals, and needs of children and families through an individualized plan of care, concurrent with other treatments. We come to you – children are supported in their homes, surrounded by family, friends, and the things that they love.

The care for your child includes:

  • Expertise in pediatric pain, symptom management, and end of life care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.
  • Proactive approach to symptom control using the least invasive methods possible.

  • Individualized goal-setting and care plan for each patient and family.

  • Social workers and chaplains who provide emotional and spiritual support.

When your child is sick, it can feel overwhelming to navigate all of the options that are being presented. We are here to help you make ethical decisions for your child and family; visit our PMC Kids FAQ for more information.
