What makes Julia Hospice & Palliative Care different?

Our Philosophy of Care

  • Understanding the patient as the whole-person behind their illness​

  • Partnering with the patient and all their caregivers including other doctors to facilitate true team-based collaborative care

  • Employ personalized "holistic care" that brings together both traditional and non-traditional treatments if it is beneficial to the patient's well-being.

  • Each of the 18 patient suites includes 300 square feet of living space, a private open wheelchair-accessible bathroom/shower facility, and a secure closet with a safe for personal belongings.
