Providence Health Care’s distinguished work in the area of palliative care has earned us a place at provincial and federal tables, helping to direct the future of hospice palliative care in Canada and ultimately championing the needs of any person and family impacted by life-limiting illnesses.
“What has surprised me is how little palliative care has to do with death.
The death part is almost irrelevant. Our focus isn’t on dying, our focus is on quality of life.”
- Balfour Mount, pioneering Canadian physician who coined the term “palliative care”
