The Palliative Care department at Lowell General Hospital provides supportive care services to people facing life-threatening illnesses and/or complex medical situations. Palliative care is special health care that can ease pain and other symptoms and side effects from your illness or treatment. It can help you and your family cope with your illness, and emotional, practical and spiritual concerns.
Our inpatient service is offered to patients undergoing treatments for serious illness at our Main Campus and Saints Campus. Our outpatient Palliative Care office is located at 295 Varnum Avenue in Lowell.
If you wish to have a palliative care consultation while you are admitted in the hospital, please speak with your hospitalist or your primary care physician.
