Palliative Care Center
The Palliative Care Center is committed to improving care for the seriously ill and dying through the development, implementation and dissemination of innovative educational, research, and clinical care programs.
The Palliative Care Center at Froedtert Hospital was organized in 1993 to provide clinical care to seriously ill patients at Froedtert Hospital, a 450 bed academic non-profit tertiary care hospital, the primary teaching hospital for the Medical College of Wisconsin. Clinical care is coordinated through a clinical consultation service, inpatient unit, and outpatient clinic. The Program was recognized by the American Health Association's Circle of Life Award in 2004.
