Professional Partners

Extend your expertise with ours

Austin Palliative Care (APC) works with physicians, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation centers to better transition patients back into a home environment.  By coordinating care and actively managing symptoms, unnecessary hospital readmissions and ER visits can be reduced.  And when the time is appropriate, APC can ease the patient’s and family’s transition to hospice care.

 

Partner with us to improve patient outcomes and patient/family satisfaction.

You can be assured that your patients are receiving the right care at the right time by partnering with Austin Palliative Care to relieve suffering and improve quality of life for your patients with progressing, serious illnesses.
