Pathways program opens Palliative Care clinic in Salisbury
For people who are facing a serious illness, palliative care can provide better quality of life through symptom management and care coordination.
Residents of Rowan County now have access to palliative care services in their home and at a new clinic location in Salisbury through Pathways Palliative Care of Rowan County.
The program held a ribbon cutting in conjunction with the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday to celebrate the opening of its Palliative Care Clinic at 1125 Old Concord Road. The clinic will be open to patients by appointment beginning in October.
“It is exciting to see growth continue in Rowan County,” said Rowan County Commission Chairman Greg Edds. “As your business becomes part of our community, it will bring real value to people’s lives.”
During the ribbon cutting, Pathways Medical Director Dr. Charles Frankhouser said one of the goals of palliative care is to help patients who may be struggling with symptom management and a plan of care. Palliative care can also help reduce repeated hospitalizations for patients, Frankhouser noted.
“We are honored to be part of the Rowan County community, and want to make sure the patients and families we serve have the best quality of life possible,” he said. “We are able to see patients in their homes, or in the clinic setting – wherever the patient is most comfortable.”
