The Palliative and Supportive Care Alliance (PSCA) is a collaboration with Hospice of Marshall County and Marshall Medical Centers. A voluntary Board of Directors representing each partner governs the PSCA. Through the PSCA, an interdisciplinary palliative care team bridges the gap between hospital care and community care for those living with life threatening illnesses. The focus of the team is comfort, addressing not only physical symptoms, but emotional and spiritual suffering while assisting the patient and their family to gain access to care most aligned with their personal goals of care. It is the goal of the PSCA and the interdisciplinary team to improve the patient’s quality of life, as well as to avoid unnecessary hospital readmissions or unwanted treatments or procedures.
PSCA is located in Marshall County, Alabama assisting patients from Marshall Medical Centers as well as in patients’ homes.
