Patient and Family Support

Resources for Patients

Here at Penn, our top priority is the well-being of our patients.

The work for our patients goes beyond the walls of the HD center at Penn, but to communities all around where we make sure that our patients are provided with care and resources to address their concerns and answer their questions.

See below for several resources to assist you with your specific needs. If you have any other questions or concerns for your specific patient care, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you with your case!
