Patient- and Family-focused Care
We understand that each patient has personal and unique concerns. This is why we encourage our patients, and those close to them, to be active participants in care. We work with each family to meet their needs. Through each step, we clearly explain every aspect of care – discussing all appropriate options to help the patient and their family make the best decisions.
