Health System Membership

How a health care system cares for its most ill and vulnerable patients speaks volumes about the quality of that organization. At Providence St. Joseph Health we have an opportunity to provide state-of-the-art care; doing so requires real sophistication in how we train clinicians and develop specialty palliative care programs. CAPC is the authoritative source for both education in clinical best practices in care of people with serious illness and their families and programmatic expertise for building relationships with a health system’s leadership and developing compelling business cases for the specialty service line of palliative care. We felt that a systemwide CAPC membership was the right way to support our palliative care programs and colleagues across this highly diverse seven-state health system.
