Presence St. Mary's Hospital Raises Awareness of Palliative Care

  
At Presence St. Mary’s Hospital, our comprehensive palliative care program, led by Regional Medical Director, Lynn McDonald, MD, offers specialized care to those patients with serious illness. Working together, our team develops a plan of care that is right for each patient’s individual situation and needs.

Dr. McDonald has worked in the field of palliative medicine and hospice care for over 14 years, nine of which at Presence St. Mary’s Hospital. Her dedication and compassion can be seen in the work she does each and every day. “Palliative care is a very intricate process that focuses on the best possible care, not only for the patient, but the family as a whole,” McDonald explained.

In addition to Dr. McDonald, Advanced Practice Nurse, Sue Giacchino has joined the Palliative Care Team. Sue brings over 25 years’ experience in critical care nursing and seven years in infections disease.

To refer a patient, please call: 815.928.6112 (office)
