Compass Care provides comprehensive palliative care for children who require end-of-life care, as well as children with chronic life-threatening conditions who may live for many years or eventually be cured.  The program brings specially trained doctors, nurses, social workers, child life specialists, spiritual care staff and pharmacists together as a team to ensure that each child’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs are addressed at all stages of care.

UCSF Children’s Hospital creates an environment where children and their families find compassionate care at the forefront of scientific discovery, with more than 150 experts in 50 medical specialties serving patients throughout Northern California and beyond.  The hospital admits about 5,000 children each year, including 2,000 babies born in the hospital.
