Palliative experts and supportive, sensitive caregivers come together for a holistic treatment that includes expert medical care, symptom and pain management, and emotional and spiritual support.

Physicians board-certified in geriatrics lead our integrative team, providing expert management of pain and symptoms as well as insight into goals for your care and what to expect from your treatment.
We provide professional assistance with complex medical decisions, guidance to help you better understand your illness, and support with planning for the future, including advanced directives.
Suffering from end-stage pancreatic cancer, Mr. Torrio was in the process of being discharged from the hospital. His family was concerned that they were unequipped to care for him at home. They contacted our liaison, who smoothed his transition to Martine Center.
Our medical team immediately designed a plan to control and relieve any pain Mr. Torrio was experiencing. Our priority was making him comfortable. Our social workers made sure to share all treatment options with both Mr. Torrio and with his family. The entire team guided the family through feelings of sadness, fear, anger, and acceptance.
“My father was a good, honest, and gentle man, and deserved all the compassion in the world. Losing him was difficult, but the team at Martine Center was wonderful. They alleviated his pain, and treated him with dignity.”
