Complex Transitional Care (CTC) provides a transitional level of care when a patient no longer requires the hospital's acute care services.
Care on CTC is provided by a team of health care professionals to persons who have medically complex, nursing, and therapeutic needs. The complexity of patient needs requires the intensity of staffing levels, typical of a hospital environment.
In order to be considered for admission to CTC, the care of patients must exceed the capability or provision of community services or those services found in a long-term care facility. The focus of CTC is to develop a plan of care that would enhance quality of life and facilitate discharge to a lighter level of care.
The goal of the program is to optimize patients’ quality of life, maximize their independence and improve their function, to the best extent possible.
- Goal of Palliative Care is symptom management and comfort care for those who are suffering from a life-limiting illness

- Medically and complex specialized services are offered over an extended period of time to maintain/slow the rate of functional losses
