Meet the Palliative Care Team

Palliative care uses a team approach in order to meet not only physical needs but also the psychological, social, cultural, emotional and spiritual needs of the patients and family.

Working with your physician, the Palliative Care team usually involves a palliative care nurse, a palliative care provider, social worker, chaplain and staff nurses. Other healthcare professionals are added to the team depending upon the needs of the patient and family.


Our providers handle care plans for you while you're a Palliative Care patient in the hospital. Nurse practitioners also visit you outside the hospital for routine care.

Nursing staff

The Palliative Care Nurses provide comprehensive care plans, symptom management and compassionate care for you and your family. The nurses are your primary contact for any medical questions.

Social workers

Palliative Care Social Workers provide counseling and support. They maintain patient dignity and work with you in understanding your healthcare choices. They advocate for your goals and provide grief support as needed for your family.


UnityPoint Health - Des Moines' Palliative Care Chaplain's are available to meet the spiritual needs of you and your loved ones. Chaplain services are non-denominational and optional. You may choose to receive spiritual support from your own clergy.
