If you suffer with a chronic or serious illness, a palliative care consult may be beneficial to you. This specialized care provides comfort and emotional support, even while you are receiving aggressive and curative treatments. Hospice of Texarkana is contracted by CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System to provide this service, which is directed by our Hospice and Palliative Care Certified physician, Dr. Ron Stephens.
