About the Division of Palliative Care and Geriatric Medicine


Our interprofessional team of medical, nursing, pharmacy, and social work specialists seeks to improve the quality of care and life of seriously ill patients and their families at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center.

We provide comprehensive palliative care services to patients, both in the hospital and at outpatient clinics, focusing on relief from the symptoms and stresses of serious illnesses, including cancer, heart and lung diseases, and dementia.

Our team-based care approach reflects the vision developed by Dr. Frank Lahey in creating the Lahey Clinic almost 100 years ago. Through our teaching and academic efforts, we also work with our colleagues to promote their palliative care skills.

We appreciate your interest in our work. Please contact us with any questions about our services. For more information regarding our academic training program, visit the Palliative Care Fellowship page.
