Critical Junctures Institute
(Whatcom County, WA)

The Critical Junctures Institute and Riverstyx Foundation are partnering to develop a system of patient-centered care that will achieve the best possible quality of life and maximize attainable functional capacity for people with incurable, progressive diseases. Together, we aim to develop a program of palliative care in Whatcom County to work collaboratively with patients and families to develop a plan of care, one that is sensitive to personal, cultural, and religious values. This model will also fully integrate primary and specialty care physicians, home health, inpatient hospital, and hospice care.
