The UPMC Palliative and Supportive Institute

Our Goals are Simple

The UPMC Palliative and Supportive Institute and its staff focus on treating patients experiencing or living with a serious or life-limiting illness. Our focus is on managing and treating symptoms, reassuring, and helping patients and their families have the best possible quality of life during their illness.

Even when a cure is not possible, we recognize the importance of treating patients and their families according to their own goals and wishes for care, whatever the illness or prognosis.

The clinicians of the UPMC Palliative and Supportive Institute work collaboratively with other health care professionals throughout UPMC to provide the support and services that can make life's transitions less stressful:

Life has meaning. We are here to ensure that patients, families, and caregivers have the opportunity to experience each moment with dignity and grace.
