AKRON CHILDRENS HOSPITAL FOUNDATION wrote -The Akron Children’s Hospital Haslinger Family Pediatric Palliative Care Center serves children, from before birth and into adulthood, who have complex, chronic or life-threatening medical conditions. Pediatric palliative care provides additional support for families on difficult medical journeys, in partnership with cure-directed care. Our palliative care team works in collaboration with a child’s other healthcare providers to coordinate care, to improve communication and to help with decision-making. Patients receive comprehensive, interdisciplinary care to control pain and other symptoms, as well as social, psychological and spiritual support. Your donation will go toward enhancing the lives of our patients and families in a variety of ways.
