Patient Care

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.
