A Team Approach to Your Care

Patients with serious and chronic illnesses may live longer and enjoy a higher quality of life during and after treatment by the Kelsey-Seybold Palliative Care team. The team works together with a patient's other doctors to help provide comprehensive care. Palliative care can be provided at any stage of illness, even if a cure is likely.
