As a patient, know that Allegiance Health will stay involved with you for as long as you need us. The ongoing effects of cancer vary, and so do our support programs.
As part of the discharge process following a hospital stay, you will receive support by a discharge planner or case manager. The clinical case manager is trained to help arrange for appropriate support services and medical care once you leave the hospital. Your discharge plan is also shared with your primary care physician.
Home Care and Hospice
Allegiance Hospice enables patients and families to make decisions about the course of care when a cure is no longer an option. We focus on enhancing life quality by providing comfort and managing symptoms, while providing grief support for the dying patient and his or her family.

Allegiance Home Care provides quality care in the comfort of the home. Highly trained, experienced team members use state-of-the-art technology and provide compassionate, individualized care that is tailored to fit your home healthcare needs.

At the Pain Management Center, we will help you manage your pain so you can return to a normal, active, productive life. We take a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach for the evaluation and treatment of your pain.
