Gilchrist Kids should be called as soon as it is recognized that your child has a life limiting illness and the physician has determined the need for comfort care, also known as palliative care.

There are numerous illnesses/ conditions that can be life limiting, such as:

  • cancer,
  • congenital anomalies,
  • end stage diseases of an organ system (heart, lungs, kidneys, etc.),
  • neurological degenerative diseases (Battens Disease, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, etc.)
  • traumatic injuries.

Gilchrist Kids has a toll free referral hotline: 1.800.467.7423.
