Palliative Care Services in Pittsburgh, Altoona, Johnstown and State College, PA
“Care With Integrity.”
Pinnacle Palliative Care is a caring professional palliative & hospice care team who never loses sight of the person behind the illness. Our program is for patients with advanced illness providing medical care and supportive services wherever the patient calls home. It focuses on providing patients relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their family members and reduce burdensome hospital admissions and emergency room visits when care can be better delivered in the comfort of home.
Our specially trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists work together with the patient’s doctors to provide an extra layer of caring support at home. A clinician who knows the patient is available 24/7.
Pinnacle Palliative Care treats people suffering from serious and chronic illnesses such as dementia, stroke, cancer, heart failure, COPD and kidney failure. We assess and treat symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping and depression.
