History and background


The community non-profit enterprise “Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Clinical Palliative Care Center” was  one of the first hospices to be established in Ukraine. It opened its doors in 1997 as an inpatient hospice and in November 2022 we celebrated the institution’s 25th anniversary. Our center is a coordinating center for all palliative care departments in the Ivano-Frankivsk region (since 2020) and one of the three most competent palliative care centers in Ukraine (along with Kyiv and Kharkiv).

The aim of our center is to provide high-quality, comprehensive, timely care to seriously ill patients with progressive diseases such as cancer, mainly at the end of life. We strictly observe the principles of accessibility and continuity in the provision of palliative care. Our services cover not only the needs of patients, but also those of their family members. Quality is at the heart of palliative care and we are dedicated to provide best services we can.

For this purpose, the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Clinical Center for Palliative Care has two departments in its structure:

– Inpatient department (hospital) with 30 beds – for providing round-the-clock palliative care to seriously ill patients, mainly in the terminal phase;

– Outpatient/consultative department – for providing palliative care to adults and children at home, or in any place where the patient is located. This department has 2 team; one for adults and one for children.

We have created a multidisciplinary team which includes doctors, nurses and other health care professionals. All patients and members of their families receive the help of a psychologist and a chaplain for spiritual help, regardless of their religion.

We plan to expand the service of providing psychological and spiritual support during the period of loss of a loved one, the period of bereavement, involving a chaplain, psychologists, and volunteers . For this, we will arrange a special room. Next steps are to provide physical rehabilitation and occupational therapist services for all hospice patients.
