"As a geriatrician, I have always had a great interest in palliative and hospice care. When I started working at Brisas Health (formerly Hospicio Las Brisas) I could see the great human warmth, empathy and love that the whole team gives to patients. I could appreciate the great knowledge the team has about the necessary care at the end of life.

The entire Brisas Health team takes care of patients as if they were part of their own family, with a lot of dedication."
