In this episode of the Palliative Care Program Spotlight, Greg Kimura, MD, Director of Palliative Care for Monarch Healthcare in Orange County, California, discusses how his program’s high-risk touch, supportive care, and palliative care teams help patients throughout the continuum of care. In order to achieve the triple aim, Dr. Kimura addresses the importance of patient satisfaction and ongoing physician training, especially when it comes to the serious illness conversation.

“The model of our program is to cure sometimes, to relieve often, but to comfort always.”
