About Pinnacle Palliative Care

Pinnacle Palliative Care and Hospice is a locally owned and operated health care provider with offices located in Pittsburgh and Altoona, bringing services throughout Western PA including Pittsburgh, Altoona, Johnstown and State College. We offer end-of-life care to those with life limiting illnesses in the communities we serve. We believe the very special care we provide is performed best by professionals who live and work in the community they serve.

Pinnacle was founded on Christian beliefs that are weaved into our care program. Our “patient and family come first” concept surrounds the patient with support, ensuring the highest possible quality of life. Pinnacle provides support to natural helpers, including family, friends, personal physicians and members of religious or social groups. Pinnacle's dedicated care teams are committed to helping the patient maintain his or her dignity by increasing their quality of life and providing comfort – not only for physical symptoms, but also for their emotional and spiritual needs.

End of life care is not a one-size-fits-all program. Pinnacle's services are specifically tailored to meet your individual needs and customized to provide the care that you and your family request and expect. It’s care with integrity.
