Palliative and Specialized Care

A healthy body is a result of sound mind, body & soul. Incongruity in the working of any of these elements results in the state of bodily disorder. For illnesses & disabilities of serious nature, an immediate medical intervention providing for specialized medical care is critical. Palliative care is dedicated care for people with life‐threatening ailments, where the approach involves a holistic treatment to the patients. The cornerstone of palliative care is to provide relief from distress and symptoms of a serious disability or illness and help achieve a superior quality of life.

RMH has an experienced palliative team comprising expert doctors, qualified support staff & high‐end medical equipment to manage such patients. We make sure to extend an added layer of care to provide solace and instil hope in the patients.
