Supportive Care Medicine Programs and Services
Cedars-Sinai Supportive Care Medicine program lends support to patients and their families who are facing a life-limiting illness. Its consultative services are open to all eligible people within the program's service area regardless of race, creed, religion or ability to pay.
The Supportive Care Medicine consultation service is available to any patient admitted to Cedars-Sinai. The interdisciplinary team consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers and chaplains who work with patients, families and the rest of the medical team to provide an additional layer of support and care coordination. Supportive Care Medicine assists with pain and symptom management and has expertise in developing personalized plans of care that meet patients and families’ goals.

Heart Institute/SCM Cardiology Services
Cedars-Sinai performs more heart transplants than any other center in the world, and we are the largest mechanical circulatory support center in the country. We use mechanical circulatory support technology to improve survival as a bridge to transplant and as definitive therapy for some patients with advanced heart disease. These patients face many unique physical and psychosocial challenges associated with their healthcare. Supportive care medicine providers are integrated within the mechanical circulatory support team to provide symptom management, advance care planning and to help deliver family-centered cardiac care.
