Circle of Life Awards Honor Innovative Palliative and End-Of-Life Care

University Health System Palliative Care Team – San Antonio, Texas

The University Health System’s Palliative Care Team is an integrated inpatient and outpatient community-based program serving adults, adolescents, children, geriatrics and perinatal patients across 22 counties. The program makes a particular effort to reach underserved, rural and immigrant patients, guided by a strong population health ethic. Consistent with that orientation is a partnership with Promotores, community health workers who serve migrant patients and families experiencing homelessness. As part of its commitment to education, a palliative care medical fellowship is offered through its partnership with UT Health San Antonio and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
