The new Pediatric Palliative Care Clinic at the Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada has been something I have dreamed of for many years, but was never sure it would actually come to fruition! We are so happy to see this day come.
It has been my pleasure to work with many, many families over the years whose children are affected by life-limiting conditions. They have special needs that are not always completely understood by all caregivers. Most of all, they are parents who just want what is best for their kids. However, as a result of the medical diagnosis, these parents are often forced into a confusing maze of medical and insurance decisions, the likes of which they’ve never seen.
My experience, along with that of Kathleen Gates, M.D., and all of the medical team and staff at the pediatric palliative clinic, will be a great resource for these families!
L to R Angela Berg, DNP and Kathleen Gates, M.D. will oversee operations of the Pediatric Palliative Care Clinic.
