Palliative Care Program Awarded a Circle of Life Citation of Honor

For excellence in end-of-life care, the UPMC Supportive and Palliative Care Program received the 2011 Circle of Life Citation of Honor from the American Hospital Association.

The citation is in recognition of the program's breadth of work, its commitment to spreading palliative care across the entire health system, and its progress in changing the culture of the health care organization.

As a winner of the citation of honor, the program received a commemorative plaque and was profiled in the Circle of Life booklet.
