St. Luke's Clinic – Palliative and Supportive Care: Meridian

Palliative and supportive care optimizes your quality of life through support tailored to your individual needs. Our team of experts will help guide you and your family through any stage of a serious illness or health problem. We'll work to improve communication between you, your family, and your health care providers. Together, we'll discuss your treatment choices, decision making and planning for your future, and managing your illness at home to avoid hospitalization.

It's never too early to start palliative care. We can prevent or provide relief from symptoms like:

  • Pain
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sleep problems
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Emotional and spiritual distress
Note: We are available to answer calls during our operating hours Monday-Friday, but only see patients in our clinic on Thursdays.
